ALTO is an international, youth-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing accessible and quality music education to young students around the world. We aim to fulfill this by providing high school musicians and their music directors with the necessary resources, consulting, grants, and global networks to start and manage student-led music tutoring programs in their school or community. Each program offers free or reduced rate private lessons taught by high school tutors to elementary + middle school students in the surrounding area. Each program is run by local high school musicians and is established to foster long-term musical unity and growth within the school district/community it serves. To further enrich our tutors' and students' musical growth, ALTO also offers local and worldwide events such as masterclasses, performance opportunities, workshops, seminars, and social events. For more about our mission, see our website at https://www.altomusictutoring.org/.
ALTO currently supports 23 music tutoring programs spanning 9 U.S states/territories and 5 countries. These programs have collectively offered 20,000+ lessons to 1,400+ students taught by 400+ tutors. Over the last six months, our team has totaled up to 300+ hours of program consultation and development with our 60+ Program Coordinators. Additionally, we've been featured on several media outlets including MSN, NBC Sacramento (KCRA3), NHK, The Enterprise, Yahoo, and more.
We have also held several virtual and local events such as masterclasses, Q&A sessions, recitals, and we've supported our programs with our extensive grant opportunities.
School music programs across the nation have been greatly hurt by the pandemic, with some schools cutting the performing arts altogether. In hopes of reviving and reinvigorating these music programs, we are working with dozens of schools across the nation this summer to launch music tutoring programs in their community.
