Intonation Music

Intonation works with young people in Chicago to experience making music on their own terms, leading to personal growth and the enrichment of their communities. 

Offered in partnership with schools, park districts, and community organizations, our year-round classes make music accessible to young people by providing them with instruction, mentorship, instruments, and the chance to perform on stages across the city. Each Intonation student takes part in a personal and team approach to practice, setting goals and problem solving; and over time, they gain the confidence to take charge of their direction and seek out new experiences.
