About Music for Youth in Cincinnati
Music for Youth in Cincinnati (MYCincinnati) is a free youth orchestra program in Price Hill. Founded on the idea that personal transformation can be achieved by striving towards musical excellence, MYCincinnati offers children in Price Hill the opportunity to learn violin, viola or cello and play in an orchestra.
MYCincinnati is inspired by “El Sistema,” Venezuela’s revolutionary youth orchestra program that uses music as a vehicle for social change. Students enrolled in MYCincinnati meet for 10 hours a week in Price Hill. The program consist of group and private lessons, sectionals, orchestra, musicianship and frequent performance.
