I HEART's 1+1= Music is a non-profit program that aims to educate, empower, and enable students artistically through music. In keeping with I HEART's mission to integrate independent artists and their community, it is our pledge to provide a unique opportunity to students of all ages regardless of financial restraints and facilitate the mentoring of tomorrow's artists by up-and-coming artists of today. We offer both full scholarships and sliding scale rates. Also, when a student who is capable of paying a reasonable full rate enrolls in classes they are assisting an underprivileged student by affording him or her the opportunity to participate in our music education program as well.
