SNAP! After School, a Stax Music Academy program provides music education, mentoring and unique performance opportunities to youth.
SNAP! After School fulfills the need for high-quality programs designed to teach youngsters music, readies them to become adults, and provides life-skills training & experiences, college prep, cultural exchanges, travel opportunities & more. SNAP! students become better musicians & instructional mentoring helps to mold them into better individuals. "Through these children, American Soul music has a future," said Mr. Al Bell, former President/Board Chairman-Stax Recording Company, Mphs TN
Some activities offered through partnerships include:
-Berklee College of Music
-Iris Orchestra/students perform & interact with artists such as Brandford Marsalis
-The Bird School of Music, San Francisco
Serving over 2,000 since 2000, our program can serve youngsters infinitely. Stax Music Academy teaches kids 'real music' & uses the same as a mentoring tool. Our program improves quality of life, artistically, save kids lives & fuels creativity.
