Grounded in Music recognizes the positive impact that music education can have on the lives of children, improving their reading comprehension, their reasoning skills, and their self-confidence. With many area public schools lacking such music education programs, Grounded in Music has undertaken a mission to bring professional musicians into the East and South branches of Boys & Girls Club of Austin. These master musicmakers teach kids in grades 4–12 how to play guitar, keyboards, and drums, as well as how to express themselves through hip-hop songwriting.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to provide a new drum set for a Grounded in Music classroom. For every $500 raised, a set of skins, snares, and cymbals will be given to a classroom in time for Grounded for Music's Spring 2011 session.
At the end of the seven- to 10-week session, Grounded for Music's band of melodic minors will stage a full-scale concert, where family members, friends, and others from the community will have a chance to see and hear these young musicians in action.
