Help us Change Lives through Music!

Each student in Sistema Tulsa benefits from a rich music curriculum that nurtures a caring, cooperative and joyful community. We believe that learning music helps students reach their full potential. We make this opportunity possible by offering programs that are free of cost and accessible to all. We are a ministry of the Boston Avenue United Methodist Church and serve over 100 students from Elementary through High School each year in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.

Sistema Tulsa has quickly grown from a start-up organization to one that is maturing into a powerful educational framework to effect positive change. 9 out of 10 students believe they succeed in learning all of their music well. Feeling confident about one's learning is an important aspect of academic growth. 10 out of 10 students agree that they add value to their orchestra and its members. The opportunity to contribute to the work of a community helps students affirm their confidence.
