The mission of Project STEP is to address the under-representation of racial and ethnic minorities in professional classical music by preparing them to compete and succeed in that world. The program is open to Black, Latino and other racial and ethnic minority children under-represented in classical music. Project STEP accepts students from Boston and the surrounding areas and provides instruction on classical string instruments only: violin, viola, cello and double bass.
