HAPCO Music Foundation

HAPCO’s arts and music programs help youth use their artistic and musical talents as a vehicle to fund education or as a profession. Camps, clinics, master classes and private instruction are taught by industry and community professionals the students can relate to, identify with and learn from. The programs encourage artistic expression, technique and public performance.
