Since 2001, ACG has built Education Systems serving thousands of students locally, nationally, and internationally. Our Education Systems include curriculum developmentteacher training,  district-level strategy, standards development, and adjudication. We also focus additional resources on High Priority Areas and individuals. Our current High Priority Areas include Title I Schools, Juvenile Justice Centers, and Braille learning systems. Services we provide to these areas include in-person and virtual classroom consultation and direct instruction, free individual lessons, performance engagement with guest artists, instrument acquisition, scholarships, and individual advancement opportunities (performances, career assistance, and internships).
