OHFO: Transforming lives through music

with the following programs:


GranvilleGranville Community Music School
Named after Opry founder Granville (Grant) Leftwich, Granville provides quality music instruction to children from low-income families for the nominal fee of 50 cents per lesson. Granville is modeled after Nashville’s long-running, highly-successful W. O. Smith Community Music School. In addition to private lessons, Granville also offers group music classes to Positive Tomorrow’s after school program, Mission Academy High School and partners with Arts Council OKC to bring music to under-served schools in the OKC Public Schools district.
HOW CAN YOU HELP? Do you have instruments you or your children are no longer using? We would love to put those to great use in the hands of our students. We are also always in need of volunteer music teachers, especially in the areas of piano, guitar and violin. For more info, please email oprystaff@ohfo.org or call (405)297-9773.
