Why Music Mentorship?
Musical Empowerment is mutual empowerment
By sharing the gift of music and by using positive reinforcement, college students become role models who nurture pride and instill self-confidence in their mentees. This relationship is mutually beneficial for both teachers and children enrolled in the program. Kids learn how to play an instrument, read music, and perform, through which they learn the value of becoming a contributing member of their local community and develop discipline, responsibility, patience and confidence. Teachers learn how to develop a curriculum for effective music lessons, how to communicate with children and parents, how to be encouraging and supportive mentors, and how to actively enable their students to succeed.
