"Music is a magical gift we must nourish and cultivate in our children, especially now as scientific evidence proves that an education in the arts makes better math and science students, [and] enhances spatial intelligence in newborns" 

Michael Greene, Recording Academy President and CEO at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards, Feb 2000

MFMII Student 2

Music for Minors II Programs

Our mission is to nurture the love and literacy of music in children and enhance their academic education. We accomplish this through the following programs:

Music Docent Training: Take a "vocal" role in music education for children! Our volunteers include parents, grandparents, college students, retired teachers, seniors, musicians and community members-at-large. Training for Music For Minors II docents takes place every fall.

Workshops: Workshops provide training in focused areas. A favorite of ours is the Jo-Ann Fread Dance Workshop and drumming workshops.

Showcase Concerts & School Assemblies: MFMII produces "showcase" concerts at local colleges and other venues, providing our students a unique opportunity to perfom on a professional stage. School assemblies enable children to perform for their peers, developing self-confidence and joy in music.

Community Concerts: MFMII organizes annual concerts featuring award-winning children's recording artists such as Charlotte Diamond and Red Grammer.

MFMII Kids' Choir: MFMII is starting a new kids' choir, fall 2015.
