Social Development Through Music Education
The Big Sound creates opportunities for children and youth who, for various reasons, are excluded from extra-curricular musical activities. Participants are taught how to sing and play an orchestral instrument in an ensemble that meets 3 hours, three days per week throughout the school year. In addition, students develop personal agency and life skills such as problem solving, empathy, and self-advocacy.
Qualified teachers create a safe, fun, and caring environment for children and youth. Nutritious snacks are also provided. The Big Sound program is offered at no cost.
