"I want to see ALC change a child’s life
the way music and the arts have changed mine."

- Debora Wondercheck, CEO, Arts & Learning Conservatory

Our Values

We strive to provide all children access to quality arts programs. Our work is based on the values of accessibility, acceptance, confidence, and creativity.

ALC is a non-profit organization. We depend on our generous donors and community partners to ensure Orange County children thrive and grow through arts!

*Research by UCI’s Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory asserts that participation in musical arts improves skills in math and reading—in addition to promoting creativity, social development, personality adjustment, and self-worth.

Confidence and Creativity for Life!

ALC programs provide students a sense of belonging and an opportunity to contribute to their communities. When our youth make art together, they change themselves and the world around them for the better.

Our students embrace their creativity through performance art and transform how they perceive themselves and their place in the world.

We hire instructors, who understand how to work with children and bring out their amazing talents. These “teaching artists” implement college-level concepts into an inclusive and accessible educational environment.


We deliver high-quality productions to the community by teaching students the intricacies of live stage performance and instilling confidence, poise, and a sense of wonder.
