Classroom teachers are trained to use rhythm and simple musical instruments to aid in teaching core curriculum. When music is used as a learning tool, students are more engaged in the learning process.


Music programs are being cut across the country - just as the educational community is coming to understand that music is a key to learning and creativity, helping children make connections in math, science and other curricula, thus increasing grade point average, increasing self-esteem and building life skills. The benefits of learning through music are especially important for the under-served children we serve, who may not be good at sitting still.


Just one teacher training followed by four visits from a musician throughout the year is enough to transform a classroom into a music room with its own set of rhythm instruments. By partnering with school districts, we are able to stretch every dollar.

Long-Term Impact

Music in Schools Today is finding solutions at this time of devastating budget slashing that will increase the amount of music in schools, improve California music education, and serve as a model for other districts nationally.
