Music Is eXtraordinary(MIX) was founded in 2001 to support the needs of schools that wanted more music education for their students.  Ms. Anonymous partnered with schools to develop music programs that supported the development of quality music programs reflecting each school's cultural richness.  In the summer of 2003 MIX offered its first summer music camp where 40 Oakland youth participated in an array of multicultural arts activities.

MIX will open its first music center, the Oakland Public Conservatory, in September 2005. This is part of a larger agenda of building a national network of conservatories with a unified teaching philosophy that will serve as a model for engendering equality and compassion through community and the arts.
