Music and Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit established to bridge the growing gap between government funded educational programs and private funding. As we see less and less funding allocated from state and federal budgets for Music and Art education, the short fall needs to be picked up by private funding.
Our goal is to enroll 10,000 kids in the Antelope Valley, Southern California, and beyond in private, one-on-one, after school music lessons with qualified teachers. Through fundraising and sponsorships by local, regional, and national businesses and foundations, Music and Kids is bringing money into the economy of the Antelope Valley by providing funding for AV teachers to work with talented AV students, allowing the students to develop their vocal and instrumental talents, as well as their knowledge of music theory and performance skills.
For some young people, music is their team sport. It provides a role in a group with a common goal, and the unit together creates a beautiful whole. They learn to rely on one another, trust one another, and learn to work in that team environment. They develop friendships and a support system. It keeps them focused on a goal and many develop a passion and a purpose.
Scholarships opportunities are available to students registered with Music and Kids. Students must maintain certain academic criteria and demonstrate progress in their musical ability to continue participating in the program. A qualified student is between the ages of twelve (12) and eighteen (18), or within a three-month grace period, at the beginning of the scholarship period along with other requirements.
Music Teachers in the areas being served by Music and Kids are welcome to register with the organization to become teachers within our programs. Music and Kids will fund lessons in voice, guitar, bass, piano, and other instruments as requested by students and their parents. Lessons should also include instruction in music theory, songwriting, performance skills, and other aspects of practical application of music learning.
The Music and Kids team is a talented group of professionals from diverse industries who share a passion for music and a desire to engage, inspire and connect with people. Music and Kids always welcomes volunteers to assist us on events, day–to–day operations and special projects. We are always looking for lecturers, and artists as well as event volunteers to join our team.
