Kids in a New Groove Mentorship through Music:
- in-home and virtual
- youth, ages 5 and up
- youth affiliated with the child welfare system
Our music lessons are provided by our trained volunteers - music mentors - who are carefully vetted to work with and encourage students' growth in musicality, creating trusting relationships and overall self-confidence.
We aim to give our students all the tools necessary to be successful, by providing each student with a loaner instrument, lesson materials, instrument accessories, etc.
In addition to weekly lessons, KING students are given the opportunity to attend experiential workshops during the year. The workshops focus on building social skills and educating students on the different areas of the music industry.
Students are also given the opportunity to perform on stage throughout the year, improving their confidence and self-esteem.
