“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”—John Lennon
A fundamental principle of Believe in Music is to help as many kids as possible. We envision our curriculum being utilized as a national model for music education. Our aspiration is to represent a reform in arts education, turning the focus of instruction toward the power of emotional expression and the importance of creating a personal narrative.
As Believe in Music grows, we aim to cultivate our existing partnerships with community leaders and continue songwriting collaborations between our students and musicians from all over Baltimore. Students in the Believe in Music program have benefitted greatly from the influence of professional musicians during their collaborations. They have refined their social skills, developed better scholastic habits, and gained the tools necessary to create their own career pathways. We wish to advance these accomplishments for more students.
