The Music & Tutoring Afterschool is an academic and fine arts program that utilizes licensed teachers and college graduates. We help with homework--even when it's in Spanish-- serving students in grades K-8th. Now in its 16th year, our program also provides weekly fine arts lessons in piano, violin, brass, art and dance in partnership with Arts Plus. We have weekly STEM lessons provided courtesy of the staff at the Ivory Baker Recreational Center. Wireless Internet on laptops. And most importantly to our students, hot suppers every day.
