Dixon Music Hall

December 6, 2024

Young minds need more than food and shelter. The Arts expand horizons, and music speaks to everyone. No wonder Dixon Hall’s Music School has garnered praise and such positive attention from across the city. Every year, hundreds of children from low-income families are exposed to the joy of music through high quality instruction for fees as low as $3.00 per lesson.

Acquiring and excelling at a new skill in turn promotes self-esteem and builds a positive self-image. Moreover, early exposure to the arts shows children what life can offer—creativity, fun and beauty. A wonderful world of possibilities opens up and a lifelong passion for music can take root. Many of Dixon Hall’s music students go on to perform, win awards and launch successful careers in music.
