Tahoe Arts Project (“TAP”) was established in 1987 by a group of parents, professional musicians and teachers to bring performing arts and cultural enrichment to schools in the South Lake Tahoe region in both CA & NV.

TAP’s artists-in-schools programs meet the need for high quality performing arts activities that are lacking in individual schools. TAP reaches over 5,000 K-12th grade students, within 8 schools in El Dorado, Douglas, and Alpine counties of California and Nevada. 


Artists also perform a public show for the community to enjoy. Our programs include acclaimed performing artists from various genres and cultures and TAP has been nationally recognized as a role model for other arts-in-education organizations.


Current research validates TAP’s philosophy that these experiences help students develop their own creative and problem solving abilities, foster intellectual development and success in all academic areas.
