Provide free afterschool music lessons to economically underserved kids in the community.
The Dickinson Music Enrichment Center (TDMEC) is a newly founded 501(c3) organization located in the city of Dickinson. We serve children and families that are economically underprivileged. TDMEC programs strive to remove impediments to children wishing to have earlier exposure to music and band. Three of these obstacles are the costs of lessons, the costs of instruments, and the costs of supplies. TDMEC founders experienced these impediments firsthand and wanted to tackle these obstacles by offering free music lessons, free musical supplies, and free instruments for children whose families fall beneath a certain yearly income level. Dickinson I.S.D. band is not offered until 6 th grade. It has Been meticulously documented through several major studies that earlier exposure to music is beneficial for young children during their education. With these two programs TDMEC will fill the music opportunity void by starting their free music lesson program with 4 th grade students.
