Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our organization fills the need for many of our members who are finding themselves in a society in which they feel excluded. The most wonderful thing about groups like ours is that we bring people of all gender, cultures, sexual preference, age, religion, etc. together to work towards one common goal.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Core Music and the Arts strives to teach our members the importance of inclusivity, tolerance, team work, respect, commitment and many other life long values through the art of music and movement.

Our educators and admin members teach and mentor our membership through education in music and art.

Our staff and administration members are certified educators within school districts throughout the East Coast and/or people who have been involved within a not for profit marching program for several years.

We have won many accolades within our few years. Our Director and three other founding members or our organization are nominated members of the NJDC Hall of Fame and our director is also a member of the Buglers Hall of Fame.

Our long term goal is to work with local colleges and universities so that our members can receive actual college credits for participation within our organization.
