What We Do

IAM provides opportunities to a diverse range, both in terms of age and experience. Free grass root music programs are in place at Community Centers and Boys and Girls Clubs at multiple locations in the city of Boston. These no barrier programs introduce Boston youth with a targeted focus on reaching low to moderate income children and teens, to musical instruments and instruction, reading music notation, and experiencing an aesthetic arts experience. Over 500 school performing groups – nearly 20,000 students – attend the Great East Music Festivals in May and June annually where they perform for panel of high quality adjudicators and receive a rating and an expert coaching clinic. The Boston Crusaders are a national touring ensemble which performs in over 35 venues across 23 different states every summer.
