About Us

Our Mission

Steinway Society of Riverside County (SSRC) has been invested in musical arts education since our founding in 2002. Today we have a menu of musical experiences, musical education and instrumental instruction programs serving thousands of children and young adults each year in the Coachella Valley.

The programs support our vision statement which is to maximize the musical education opportunities of the youth of the Coachella Valley both within and outside of the academic environment. These programs also support our mission which is to provide musical experiences, music education and instruction in musical instruments to the school children of the Coachella Valley in partnership with the school districts.

The positive impact of the world of music is far more complex and far-reaching than most of us realize. Engaging with music improves language development, increases IQ, improves test scores, helps reduce stress and improves memory.

Please join us in our work to serve the school children and young adults in the Coachella Valley.
