The Barry Levitt Foundation provides music education opportunities to under resourced youth in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania via instruction, instruments, performance support, mentoring, seminars and scholarships.
Through music, we assist at risk youth to:
- Advance music literacy
- Increase cognitive skills
- Discover music as a profession
- Use music as a productive outlet for personal expression and group interaction
It is our belief that no aspiring instrumentalist or vocalist should be discouraged because of their economic circumstance. Barry Levitt spent most of his life sharing his gift of music through brilliant performance, incomparable arranging, conducting, musical direction and teaching. Through this foundation, we honor his humble roots and his creative, sharing spirit.
The Barry Levitt Foundation is a 501C3 charity.
