INTEMPO provides high-quality music education to low-income children (ages 4-17) predominantly from immigrant or first-generation backgrounds and from communities underrepresented in the arts, helping them build critical emotional, cognitive, and behavioral skills, and empowering them to leverage these skills to achieve life success. Our accessible, relevant, and inclusive programs break down barriers that keep children from participating in music education, support their musical interests, and reverse negative patterns that hold back children from realizing their potential. Within an environment that fosters joy, friendship, aspiration, and individual agency, we supplement our students’ music education with essential youth-development and family-advocacy services, including tutoring in reading for a cohort of at-risk elementary-school students, to ensure their holistic growth.
