Why should music be a right? While youth participate in music for many different reasons, their participation will result in similar outcomes: high attendance, high academics, high achievement, high self-awareness. Children who make music embody commitment, discipline, teamwork and persistence…
all proven to be vital to success in school and to joy in life.
We envision a Hawai‘i where music is a right.
Foster fun and creative experiences for youth that inspire a deep appreciation for music and lifelong relationships within the culture of our islands.
