Anthropos Arts

Anthropos Arts connects low-income youth with Austin’s best musicians for free music lessons, mentoring, workshops, and performance opportunities in some of Austin’s best-known venues. The Teaching More, Reaching More project funded by Impact Austin’s grant will expand and deepen the impact by increasing the number of students served from 110 to 150 and by doubling the number of lessons for every student. Through this project, the students will have individual music lessons with a professional musician, attend workshops with Grammy-winning artists, and perform for audiences at places like Stubb’s, Austin Music Hall, SXSW, and more. Anthropos Art’s musician instructors provide mentoring, teach life skills, serve as inspirational role models, and assist the students in obtaining scholarships to college.
