Mentorshiphasamelody_slogan

The Kids in a New Groove (KING) mentoring through music program provides Central Texas youth who have had experience with the child welfare system with a committed one-on-one mentoring relationship through free weekly, private music lessons, giving students the ability to transform their lives through connection and support.

Kids in a New Groove combines the proven effects mentorship can have on youth, with the evidence that learning music at a young age improves reading, language, and problem-solving skills to produce notable improvements in students' grades, behaviors, and attitude. 

KING creates a consistent and nurturing environment
to empower youth to transform their lives through music mentorship.
