Bandwith: Banding together

In an underserved neighborhood of Chicago, one group of kids has a second home: Bandwith. Each week, the kids in the band rehearse music together with others they call their “second family.”


They also get weekly private lessons in their instrument of choice. How to measure the success of this band program? The students’ joy never falls flat.  Bandwith calls upon each child’s full capacity, building courage to tap into even more unrealized talents.

Now, the scope of this phenomenal program is expanding beyond LEARN Charter School in East Garfield Park. Children all over Chicago will be able to experience the music making magic of Bandwith – and learn and grow together in harmony.
