Learn About Our Programs
zSharp makes music a part of every child's education. We place high quality music teachers in Bay Area schools to provide comprehensive, in-school music education. We serve over 4,000 low-income children in Richmond and Oakland who would otherwise have no formal music education.
Our music classes are completely integrated into the school day and curriculum, complementing other academic activities. zSharp provides every child at these schools with at least one music class a week for the entire school year. Our longest-tenured teachers have provided individual students with music education every week for the past seven years from kindergarten through sixth grade.
