Our Mission

Our mission is to create an equal opportunity for all our students regardless of their income levels.  We believe that through educating our students artistically, we are able to cultivate an environment and stepping stone, in which our students know and believe that they are valued members of the community.

"We want our students to have endless opportunities and choices. We want them to know that their choices are special and important."  

Music & Arts For Life was created with one goal in mind; to educate our most vulnerable members of our community in all aspects of the arts. We are a smaller organization and have the advantage of being able to spend the large majority of our donations directly on the children and their artistic educational needs. We offer free music and art lessons to our most vulnerable young community members. Bringing the community together and engaging them to overcome challenges while supporting personal confidence and growth. Giving each student the opportunity to learn not only music and arts, but diversity. Difference should be appreciated and not discriminated against. We want to cultivate an inclusive environment and instill confidence in our students as valuable members of the community, regardless of their background.

We offer free 10 week cycles of music and art lessons to our most vulnerable young community members. Bringing the community together and engaging them to overcome challenges while supporting personal confidence and growth.´╗┐

 

Why we do this...

 

Music & Arts for life is a local registered charity dedicated to supporting our local youth in the community. We believe that education today will help build the success of tomorrow; success that depends upon the youth of today. Every child deserves the opportunity to explore in music and arts. Like a ripple effect, we believe that the simple act of children joining extracurricular activities will allow them to have a chance to express themselves beyond the school boundaries. At Music and Arts we dream big, and we are firm believers on allowing our students to think outside the box. Giving each student the opportunity to learn not only music and arts, but diversity. Difference should be appreciated and not discriminated against. We want to cultivate an inclusive environment and instill confidence in our students as valuable members of the community, regardless of their background. Singing, dancing and being completely free to express oneself creatively is every child's right. There should be no racial, cultural or economic barrier. We want complete free expression; for your child to learn a new language through creative development. We want your child to have endless opportunities and choices. We want them to know that their choices are special and important.

We want your child to dream big. This is why we do what we do.
