Notes for Notes is an amazing program dedicated to providing free access for youth to musical instruments, instruction, and music-making environments so that music can become a profoundly positive influence in their lives. They have offered to provide our program with a couple of free private classes for small groups (up to 4) of mentees and their mentors in one (or potentially more) of the following: guitar, electric drums, electric keyboard, vocals, and/or mixing. Students are encouraged to sign up for free memberships afterwards and continue their lessons (all free!) with the potential to lay their own track (record a song). There are also DJ turntables (vinyl and iPod) for the DJs in the making!
Let me know if you are interested in attending a class with your mentee, and give me a list of days that work best for you around 3 PM and we will work together to make it happen!!
This is an incredible opportunity for your mentee to express themselves through music. With their membership at the MusicBox, they are also likely to meet rockstars and develop their own sound. Notes for Notes hosts various workshops as well. They recently held one that brought in a composer who does the music in movies like Jaws, Mission Impossible 2, and Liar, Liar.
