The State Street Academy of Music officially opened its doors to students in the Spring of 2006, and has since then devoted itself to its mission- 

            "to provide high-quality music instruction and activities to the broadest             constituency in greater Harrisburg area, regardless of age, gender, race, color, creed, or ability to pay…"
