The Gulf Coast Symphony has created MusicWorks!, an El Sistema-inspired after-school program embedded in a larger, pre-existing program called School Success at The Heights Center in Harlem Heights. MusicWorks! provides string instruction Monday through Friday, totaling 7.5 hours per week during the school year. This program offers an innovative education and social initiative that provides opportunities for personal development to children through the study of music.
