Turn your passion for music into action for music education!
Five years ago Infinite Music™ set out to make a positive difference in deserving kids’ lives through the universal language of music. To date, our efforts have benefited more than 150 deserving students with musical opportunities including private and group after-school music lessons, new instruments, attendance at live symphonic performances and workshops with professional musicians, and, for some, the chance to perform on a professional festival stage.
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?
Here’s an opportunity for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders to take group ukulele or percussion/drumming lessons at Del Mar Elementary in Morro Bay, starting October 2nd!
Infinite Music headed to the mountains this past August to be part of the 23rd Annual Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesapalooza in Mammoth Lakes, CA. This long-standing four-day festival was attended by over 6000 people and featured Grammy Award-winning performers and some of the best craft brewers in the country. Along with that illustrious lineup of performers the Mammoth Husky Club Ukulele Kids opened this year’s festival on the big stage with a song they wrote with their instructor Leina’ala Kailiawa.
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.
We are so excited to share with you Infinite Music’s™ very first blog entry! Since 2013, as a 100% volunteer organization, we have been keeping our heads down raising funds and developing free music programs for deserving kids. Why music? Because we know music is the vehicle that allows youth to learn and grow.
