The program was an instant hit with all of my middle school students… I was amazed at the interest my students showed.

Hyperscore had removed the barriers for students. Their creativity was no longer held back by their command of music notation or ability to perform on an instrument.

Our mission is to bring the joy of artistic creativity into every young person’s life. We are driven by a passion to knock down the barriers that deprive millions of children and youths of an education that is enriched by music, where their unique stories and voice are valued and lifted up. This is about education that has meaning and purpose.
We seek to partner with individuals and organizations to build and sustain collaborations that promote individuals’ creativity and civic engagement through music.
