Our Story


A story of love & love for the arts.

Our Mission

"Endowing Community Support for the Arts Through the Education of its Children"

Our Initiatives

The bART Center for Music is a place to awaken the musician within each of us, regardless of age, musical ability, ethnic origin, disability, or inability to pay. The mission of The bART Center for Music is to promote access and excellence in music education.

The bART serves through its three areas of expertise: The Barthelmes Conservatory, which aims to promote artistic and academic excellence and to prepare musicians of the highest quality, serving students who display the potential to pursue music as a professional career; The bART Music School strives to provide superior music education to enhance quality of lives and to promote aesthetic, musical, emotional and creative potentials regardless of ability and age; and The bART Outreach Program, which focuses on providing access to music instruments and instruction at public schools that fall in to the 91st - 99th percentile for free- and reduced lunch programs.

CREATES provides opportunities for some children to explore their potential in music through a partnership with the Barthelmes Conservatory.

Advanced study with professional musicians in the local public school is offered to children who might never have the chance for musical instruction. The Conservatory has developed a careful selection process based on a child’s innate musical aptitude to select students with the most potential for learning. These students are given the rare chance to study with the best teachers in the field of music.
