Bridge to Arts & Music (BAM) provides tuition-free instrumental instruction, musical instruments, academic support, and community for underserved students between the ages 6 to 12. Built on a foundation of partnership and hosted at a network of sites throughout ߲ݴý Francisco, BAM delivers an immersive afterschool music program designed to meet the unique needs of its community and offer music training to young people who would not otherwise have access to it.


About The Tindley Academy

The Tindley Academy was established in the Fall of 1988 as an outreach ministry of Third Baptist Church by its Pastor, Dr. Amos C. Brown. After six successful years, the Academy was incorporated in November of 1994 as an independent non-profit Agency to better serve the total community, especially the inner-city youth of the Western Addition of ߲ݴý Francisco with a quality artistic, academic, and cultural enrichment program.

Through BAM, we plant the seeds of music that will enhance and enrich the life of your child for a lifetime..”
