Access to High-Quality Music Education

Improving Math, Literacy and Concentration Skills Through Music Education in Underserved Communities


The MacPhail Center for Music provides more than 3,600 Minnesota school children with access to high-quality music education and the Olseth Family Foundation is privileged to be a partner with them as they reach many underserved communities of the Twin Cities. Regardless of socioeconomic factors, children in the partnership schools have dramatically improved math, literacy and concentration skills. They achieve self-assurance through music education that is priceless because they have earned it through persistence and dedication.
