BASICS - Benefiting All Students In Cranston Schools
BASICS has provided affordable music instruction to over 800 elementary students since 2009.

Thank you to all of our sponsors for allowing us to provide for students in need.  Through their kindness and generosity, we have been able to offer financial assistance to approximately 30% of our families and keep overall program costs down.

We have been privileged to watch music students grow. They have sold out events, packed audiences at the Garden City Gazebo, and have been featured on ABC, NBC, and in many print newspapers.  They've pulled off an amazing flash mobs.  They've made CD's, opened their own art shows, worked to raise hundreds of dollars to help other kids in our community.
