The Music and Kids Flagship Program is focused on children from ages 8 to 18 who come from under-served communities in the Antelope Valley.
Through our one-on-one learning program, each student will have the opportunity to pick the instrument they wish to learn and the type of music they'd like to perform. That student will receive a one-hour lesson per week with and once the student is proficient in playing their instrument, they will join our performance group.
At Music and Kids, we don't just teach our students how to play a song, we teach them music theory which is the study of the practices and possibilities of music. They begin to understand the math behind the music allowing them to navigate any instrument or song. As our students grow they will begin to enjoy playing their instruments freely. Research has shown that piano students understand mathematical and scientific concepts quicker and performed 34% higher on tests measuring proportional reasoning such as fractions, proportions, ratios, and thinking in time and space. Our hope is that music may always play a part in our student's life, even beyond out teachings. Or, it may just be the beginning of something larger.
Music and Kids build character, responsibility, and strength through music.
