“Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand.”
In 2012, Believe in Music was established with the goal of providing an innovative music education experience for Baltimore's youth. We utilize state-of-the-art production technology and encourage self-expression through artistic creation. Our unique approach provides the “spark” for children to become captivated by music. We maintain that spark by helping students develop into artists, introducing them to professionals in the music industry and exposing them to educational and employment opportunities through the arts.
Over the last four years, we have conducted programming in schools and community centers across many of Baltimore’s neighborhoods. One of the most memorable moments for our students was their appearance on live television, after a song they wrote about Baltimore’s uprising in the spring of 2015 garnered national attention for its message promoting peace and unity. Believe in Music has been able to engage musicians all over Baltimore who wish to mentor our students and help them develop their craft to its full potential.
We currently operate out of West Baltimore’s Green Street Academy. The middle-high school is the perfect home for our program to interact with and serve the youth of Baltimore who need music education the most. We also conduct programming at the Penn North Children’s Safe Zone. Believe in Music hopes to sustain our positive impact on the community and encourage artistic self-expression as a way to promote peace.
