What is El Sistema?  El Sistema Colorado is a visionary movement that transforms the lives of children through music; a new model for social change.

Our mission is to empower children by providing an intensive music program that teaches the importance of teamwork, promotes self-confidence, and instills the value of social responsibility.

El Sistema grows from loving children first and loving music second. Emphasis is placed on creating a supportive community. Teachers and students alike are invested in both personal and community success, creating a place where children feel safe and challenged.

Our graduates leave with a sense of capability, endurance and resilience — owning a confidence about taking on enormous challenges in their lives. A deep sense of value, of being loved and appreciated, and a trust for group process and cooperation enables them to feel that excellence is in their own hands.
