Total So Far for Kidznotes: $2240.00
What We Do
Kidznotes provides 8–10 hours each week of free orchestral music training and instruments to students from the lowest income neighborhoods in Raleigh and Durham. We use music to change the life trajectory of our children and their families. Students are empowered as leaders and advance through a system of orchestras, bands, and choirs while strengthening the community. Through an immersive music education program, Kidznotes fosters each child’s intellectual, social, and emotional development. In building a new pipeline of musical training, Kidznotes’ student body reflects the diversity of the communities that we serve—a diversity that continues to be absent in the landscape of many classical music programs.
“From a Kidznotes parent: “”At every turn, and with every note played on her violin, I have watched Kiarra transform. Kidznotes is having a significant impact on her reading and math skills, as well as building her confidence and character.”
Kidznotes is in the middle of a $24,000 challenge grant with The Stewards Fund. They will match every new or increased gift made before December 31st. Let’s spread the word and rally our friends, family, and neighbors to support Kidznotes kids!
