Urban Dreams Music and Arts Program (UDMA) a national leader in the effort to assure diversity in the arts. Founded in 2018, UDMA is a Texas 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that offers inner city youth between the ages of 8 and 19 advanced study and high caliber success in instrumental music and dance. UDMA’s objective is to transform the lives and minds of young people by developing character, challenging emotional, physical, psychological, and social recreation while promoting the values of team work through camaraderie, honor and respect by dignity, determination with grit, and perfection through showmanship.
UDMA is entirely community-funded, and led by our devoted volunteers and our professional teaching artists, who work tirelessly with the Dreamers to cultivate and sustain a distinguished, responsible, and resourceful youth organization. All instruments, instruction, paraphernalia and uniforms are provided to Dreamers who pay a commitment participation fee.
