Learn About Our Programs
zSharp hires full-time certified music teachers to provide comprehensive, in-school music education to over 7,600 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.
