Professional musicians and bands touring the country today all have interesting stories to tell about how they got into the music business and how music became part of their lives. Where did they get their start? When did they hear “the calling” that led them to become professional musicians? What’s it like being on stage in front of thousands of people? Why do they believe music needs to be a part of every young person’s education and life?
• No prior musical experience needed.
• Lessons are once a week for eight weeks. (Fall, Winter, and Spring 8-week terms)
• Classes are after school, on-site.
• Ukuleles provided to participating students only and can be checked out to take home for practice.
Looking back on 2017, I am so thrilled that Infinite Music was able to bring free ukulele group music lessons to over fifty elementary children through our grassroots Makin’ Music After School program. None of the kids in this program had access to music lessons previously, and probably never would without this special opportunity.
Someone recently mentioned to me they love the name of this nonprofit as it relates to our mission to empower young people through music, and I wholeheartedly agree. The infinity symbol originates from the Latin word, “infinitas” which means “unboundedness.” It draws from its ancient understanding as the symbol for eternal value, empowerment and everlasting love. Simply put, that’s the core of Infinite Music’s enduring message: when we’re introduced to music as children, the benefits stay with us for life. There are no boundaries with Infinite Music.
