About Us

SLAM’s mission is to provide students from underserved schools with accessible, contemporary and tuition-free music instruction. Our program is delivered through a network of volunteer college students, creating opportunities for mentorship and professional development through a shared experience of music. Our program offers a variety of classes at each partnering school, including Piano, Guitar, Percussion, Voice, and Rock Band.

Every day of the week, SLAM sends a group of volunteers to a middle or high school to teach music classes. There are two instructors per class, and three or four classes each day.
