Philharmonic Youth Rock

Share this on:

In 2015-16, our Community Fund is partnering with the New Mexico Philharmonic by funding their Young Musician Initiative (YMI).

YMI is an afterschool music education program for elementary school children. The children are trained in singing, music readiness, a musical instrument and ensemble performance ten hours per week, building confidence, teamwork, tenacity and problem solving skills.

Results show grades and attendance dramatically improve in YMI participants.
