Music Buddies Mentorship program
The Music Buddies Mentorship Program allows students in Alexandria City Public Schools access to free music lessons. AYPO musicians instruct and mentor these students during hour-long lessons and weekly ensembles. The Music Buddies Program gives AYPO musicians beginning experiences as music educators, and gives ACPS students the opportunity to learn an instrument through individualized instruction.
