The mandate of The Leading Note Foundation is to give children from under-served communities the opportunity to learn and make music together and the chance to benefit from the individual skills and community values that are inherent in music-making.
The Leading Note Foundation will:
- provide children in under-served communities with free group and individual music lessons and the opportunity to perform in an OrKidstra ensemble and/or a KidSingers choir.
- instill and reinforce mutual respect, discipline, teamwork, creativity, and self-confidence — all values and skills that are inherent in music-making.
- foster community participation by encouraging young musicians to become mentors to children in the program.
- broaden the community’s understanding of the value of music and the arts by involving volunteers with diverse backgrounds and skills to establish a vibrant network of music educators, players, and community members to strengthen music
