Sparks for Success! work with students experiencing traumas resulting from parental incarceration. We conduct our Music Therapy classes and Private Music Lessons in some of Austin ISD’s schools.

Our partners include Austin ISD and Communities In Schools (CIS) of Central Texas and Sparks’ Music Therapy classes are in demand.

Our Music Therapy classes are led by Board Certified Music Therapists who are who are educated in trauma and are trained in the specialized use of music interventions to reach non-musical goals.

Sparks for Success! helps our students develop the life skills they need to navigate around the present and future hurdles in their lives. We also provide Private Music Lessons to give our students the skill and confidence to join middle and high school band and orchestra.

The study of music instills important life skills that will serve our students as they progress through school, get jobs, and serve their communities.

Our goal is to encourage our students to achieve their potential. We help them develop the resilience they need so they can graduate from school, get jobs, and become contributing members of our community.

Some of our students will become leaders in their communities and will advocate for children like themselves.
