Sundays with SMYO


                                         What is "Sundays With SMYO"?

Based out of Virginia Avenue Park (2200 Virginia Ave, Santa Monica), this tuition-free music education program has served the Pico neighborhood since 2012. With multiple orchestra levels, music fundamental classes, choir, parent guitar & ukulele classes, and traditional Chinese ensembles, there is a class for everyone.


Open To All

Thanks to generous contributions from foundations and donors, "Sundays with SMYO" is completely tuition-free to all participants. We believe in eliminating as many barriers into music education as possible.

We are open to any person (ages 5-18) who can commit to attending weekly rehearsals. We hold Placement Interviews in the beginning of each semester to place students in the ensemble level that will best serve them.
