Mission

Provide high-quality arts education (music and dance classes) directly to children in schools and youth organizations that lack access to arts education. Our arts education program provides schools with a well-trained teaching artist, sequential curriculum, and instruments. For schools that have arts funding we offer sliding scale pricing, for schools with little to no funding, we use gifts from generous donors to cover the fees. We also offer professional development for educators to incorporate more arts education into the culture of their classroom and schools and DEI school wide arts education assemblies teaching about music and movement from different parts of the world and cultures.

Music and Movement Classes

Our Music and Movement Classes, typically 20 – 45 minutes per week, focus on the sequential development of musical skills. All of our classes meet or exceed the California Arts Standards for Music.
Musical Genres: Jazz, Classical, Folk from around the world, West African, Brazilian, Mexican, Mariachi, Peruvian, American, Cuban, Caribbean and more. We will introduce students to as many genres as possible to expose their bodies and minds to new sounds, beats, rhythms, languages, and modes of expression.
Instruments (varies by grade level): Drums, recorders, ukuleles, rhythm sticks, shakers, bells, scarves
Composition: All children in our programs are involved in writing their own music, movement, stories, rhythms. This makes a connection with music in a way that cannot be done from only listening to an adult giving directions.
History & Representation: History brings context to the music children are learning. Tracing back styles or genres of music leads to powerful origination stories.
