For FOUR decades Project STEP has provided our students with a creative and safe learning environment. We envision a world in which the classical music profession reflects the racial and ethnic diversity of our communities.

Project STEP began its work in 1982 in collaboration with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston University, and New England Conservatory. Through participation in high-quality, comprehensive classical string training, Project STEP students develop the tools they need to succeed not only in their musical aspirations, but also in academics and careers. Our program teaches fundamental skills including problem solving, collaboration, and critical thinking, and STEP’s dedication to our mission reaches beyond our students, making sure their families are an integral part of the program. For forty years 100% of Project STEP graduates have gone on to college or conservatory and approximately 60% of students go into the music profession.
