Boulder MUSE


Having the opportunity for self discovery through music is the birthright of all children, regardless of the financial circumstances of their families.

MUSE was inspired by El Sistema, a music education and human development program that has benefited the children of Venezuela since 1975. Programs modeled after El Sistema have been developed all over the world. Founders Elisa Snyder and Mari Madeira developed MUSE through learning about El Sistema and observing several El Sistema programs throughout the country.
