Notes for Notes® offers our members the opportunity to explore, create, and record music for free. Notes for Notes Studios are packed with professional instruments – guitars, basses, drums, keyboards/synths – and equipment – DJ gear, digital music workstations – and full recording facilities. Beyond providing access to equipment and resources, we educate youth about careers both on the stage and behind the scenes.
Real Life. My Music.
Through Real Life. My Music, we hold hour-long music, dance and art classes three times per week for a period of sixteen weeks. Our classes cover technique as well as an appreciation and history of the mediums. This sixteen-week period culminates with a showcase of the children’s newly learned craft.
We believe that a child’s emotional, social and cognitive well-being is just as important as their educational well-being in terms of developing their capabilities for success. What we do is geared at nourishing inner-city children’s minds while keeping them safe. We provide hope and inspiration. This is real life, and this is their music; we want them to beat to their own drums, not become of product of their environment.
