Through our comprehensive, affordable tuition music & fine art programs in addition to social support we aid youth in cultivating the skills, confidence, and leadership they need to re-imagine their dreams.
Strivers Achieve What Dreamers Believe
Urban Dreams Music & Arts Program (UDMAP) is a 501(c) 3
non-profit organization that believes every young musician has the fundamental right to have a dream. Through marching band each student is able to showcase their musicianship. Urban Dreams is a fundraising vehicle for scholars, parents and organizations doing the work needed to re-frame our narrative and legacy. We understand that in order to change the future, the community as a collective must invest in the dreams of our children.
Since it’s conception in 2018, Urban Dreams has been working as a trailblazer in our community to promote unity and social change in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex through music.
Youth from various charter, private and public school districts across all geographical areas in the DFW come together to every week year round to engage in instrumental music ensembles.
Urban Dreams meets in a group setting two to four times a week after school hours. Musicians starting in third grade study an instrument from one of the following instrument families – brasswind, woodwind, or percussion.
Parents are expected to have made arrangements to purchase or rent the instrument for the student. Urban Dreams meets every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6:30pm until 8:30pm; and every first and third Saturday from 11am-1pm.
Urban Dreams puts more emphasis on increasing success within the arts and academically to give the youth of the DFW Metroplex the tools they need to break the cycle of the poverty stifling the economic growth in urban communities.
