Mission Statement

KidZNotes is an El Sistema-inspired program transforming futures through classical, orchestral music training beginning in the pre-school years to combat poverty, strengthen inner-city education, and foster positive decision-making to unlock the world.

Description

KidZNotes is a not-for-profit organization that promotes classical, orchestral music training for children in Durham’s poorest neighborhoods.

Based on Venezuela’s world-reknown El Sistema model and adapted to the local realities of Durham, KidZNotes will provide free-of-charge instruction and musical instruments to interested children in the lowest-income neighborhoods of the city. KidZNotes will launch as an enrichment and after-school program in the 2010-11 school year.

As in El Sistema, the orchestra and the ensemble form the center of the KidZNotes program. Practicing and playing in groups fosters social values such as teamwork, mutual respect, and responsibility. Children also benefit from the well-documented intellectual development that comes with musical training. Finally, the hard work and accomplishment of group performance instills greater self-esteem and hope for the future.
