In our after school music program, all barriers to music education are removed, meaning that The Big Sound strives to ensure that our program can be utilized by any student, regardless of physical or cognitive abilities, financial barriers, or other road blocks that can get in the way of a child participating.
We work hard to ensure that our programs are a reflection of our mission and vision.
Our Mission is to enrich the lives of children and youth by teaching them the global language of music. Through musicianship, inspire them to achieve their full potential and acquire values, skills, and knowledge that will help them pursue excellence and thus foster social change in the community.
We envision contributing to social change by providing children and youth with a positive, safe, and healthy activity 3-4 times a week that fosters their creativity and nurtures their potential. During these sessions, participants will be taught music, how to play an instrument and perform in an orchestra and choir. Through these activities, they will be inspired to achieve their full potential, increase their self-esteem, improve the probability that they will graduate high school, go on to college or university or to satisfying jobs, and grow up to become valued and engaged members of our community.
