About

Whomever helps us by volunteering, will be helping us culturalvate, educate, counsel and instruct middle school students. We are endeavoring to reduce the recidivism rate in the City. The instructional cultural arts program is designed to consist of four components: Applied Theory and Application, Background History, Recitals and Exhibitions, and Pedagogical Analysis. The beginning program will give students the opportunity to develop basic cultural arts skills and interest. Classes above the beginning level will focus on building a repertoire for presentation, improvisation, and performance skills. Students will learn performance skills in drums, marching band, Jazz, Classical, Rock and Roll, R&B and Hip-Hop, DJ turntable technique, Gospel singing, and choir technique. Additionally, students can participate in ballet, modern dance, acting, drama, drawing and art classes . Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. Performing and composing music involves more than the voice or fingers playing an instrument; a child learning about music has to tap into multiple skill sets, often simultaneously. For instance, people use their ears and eyes, as well as large and small muscles Research also indicates the brain of a musician, even a young one, works differently than that of a non-musician. "There’s some good neuroscience research that children involved in music have larger growth of neural activity than people not in music training. When you are a musician and you are playing an instrument, you have to be using more of your brain," says Dr. Eric Rasmussen, chair of the Early Childhood Music Department at the Peabody Preparatory of The Johns Hopkins University, where she teaches a specialized course integrating math with music in her curriculum for children aged two months to nine years.
