Our mission is to inspire love of music, respect for self and others, cooperation, and community engagement through a student music ensemble, to transform the lives of students, families, and their community.
Musica Franklin's intensive after-school music program is based on the belief that that the pursuit of musical excellence teaches students to strive for excellence in all areas of their lives. It is modeled on El Sistema, a hugely successful music and social change program that was started in Venezuela 40 years ago. El Sistema is now practiced all over the world, helping to lift up children and their families.
