Hope, the spirit of chance and possibility, embodies all that we strive to be. It is the cornerstone of our Institute, a place where we seek to uplift, to bring encouragement and self belief to the hearts and minds of our children. The Hope Institute of Music (HIM) was founded in 2001 with support from the South Park Neighborhood Center, the social service provider for 1010 Development Group’s affordable housing developments. We provide quality educational programs that encompass a diverse range of musical dynamics. Our programs include a nationally acclaimed program that teaches music & cognitive skills to pre-k children, including children’s vocal performance, instrumental instruction. It is the mission of the Hope Institute of Music to introduce children to the wonderful world of music which will, in turn, foster an appreciation for our universal language and promote diversity. Through Hope our children will gain vision, gain values and dare to dream.
