Great legends never die, but instead are passed through generations to live and enrich the lives of other…such is the legacy of Art Porter Sr. and Art Porter Jr. Though, both Arts have transitioned to a higher realm of life, their spirit and legacy inspired family and friends to establish a vehicle by which their love of music can be continued. Thus the Art Porter Music Education, Inc. (APME), a 501(c)(3) corporation was born.
Our purpose is based on the personal beliefs of both ARTS, that, "the road to musical excellence is through experiencing, understanding and appreciating all music.
