Your Generosity Makes This Possible

SPARKING CREATIVITY IN MUSIC EDUCATION

Composition and Music Theory are essential parts of music education but are frequently not taught in schools nor nonprofits specializing in music. With your help, the Inception Orchestra's Young Composers Mentoring Program and Ear Training/Music Theory Club fills this gap. Our tuition-free programs offer students of all backgrounds the highest level of music education, including one-on-one instruction with top tier industry professionals.
