Music is important and Modern Maestro believes that every student is entitled to opportunities that help them flourish and thrive in the arts, regardless of their financial or economic background. Modern Maestro is a series of Music Outreach and After - School programs targeted towards underprivileged students in Prince Georges County, Maryland, allowing them to learn, grow and nurture their authentic musical talent.  

Our goal is to facilitate holistic, meaningful, and enriching music engagement opportunities to students in Prince George’s County.

Everyone at Modern Maestro, Inc. is excited about our upcoming projects. In order to make this a reality and impact the lives of students we need You!  Your support is essential to helping us achieve our goal: providing a place where students can learn, grow, and be their most authentic musical selves. 



The mission of Modern Maestro is to provide music education to economically underprivileged students in the Washington, DC area, and to promote education through the idea of cultural democracy, that all music is valuable regardless of genre, and each student that chooses to perform in a specific genre deserves a proper education.
