Volta Music Foundation’s mission is to provide students in underserved communities the opportunity to advance their musical careers through a variety of educational programs and talent development opportunities.
Volta’s programs benefit students in the United States and Latin America by providing:
- After-school music education programs and lessons
- Performance opportunities at festivals and competitions
- Musical instrument donations and maintenance workshops
- Cultural exchange and study abroad opportunities
- Access to a network of global music professionals
Volta Music Foundation’s vision is to build a worldwide support network that empowers young musicians from underserved communities in reaching their full potential.
“Achieving our mission and vision is to give life to our name.
Volta means a turning point in time, a repetition.
For us, it is the intention to support students in achieving their musical goals so that they, in return, may help others fulfill their dreams.”

Volta’s Masterclass Series gives promising young Latin American music students the opportunity to learn from performing teaching artists in the United States. This series helps music students prepare for university and performance auditions and gives them the opportunity to receive critical feedback on their music making.
Latin American Exchange Program
The Latin American Exchange Program provides cultural exchange and study-abroad opportunities to promising young musicians. Talented professors from universities and conservatories travel to schools in Latin America to host free masterclasses, workshops, and group lessons. Additionally, Volta prepares and facilitates study abroad opportunities for Latin American Students in the United States.
