The Pinecrest City Music Project aims to provide students with the musical knowledge to thrive in their music education journey through group-based instruction and hands-on learning initiatives while instilling the core values of the musical arts and its positive influences on local communities.
Our Organization motto, "Soli Tutti" exemplifies our main goal: educating over 500 Miami public school students in a chamber instructional format, "Soli", then combining our eight programs in a symphony orchestra setting, "Tutti".
Who we are
Pinecrest City Music Project, Inc. (PCMP) is a licensed charity organization that operates, funds, and instructs the musical arts programs in South Dade public schools. With 502 students and 31 staff, PCMP is the only minor-run community vendor to the School Board of Miami-Dade County. Since its inception in 2016, the organization has been endorsed by Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade School Board, and Pinecrest municipal government. With eight weekly classes including an innovative all-girls STEM-music Coding program sponsored by GeorgiaTech, the charity has raised over $290,000 in government grants and monetary/in-kind donations, and is organizing the first-ever South Dade Schools Arts Fest in honor of Arts In Our Schools Month. In reaffirming our mission of inclusivity, our ‘Tutti=All’ scholarship fund ensures free tuition for our programming and instrument scholarships.
PCMP is currently in development of Miami's first arts education-centered Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategic plan conducted through four primary tenets (gender empowerment, financial inequity, lead-by-example, and youth arts advocacy) for FY2022 budgeted at $30,000.
