What’s the most impactful way we can make communities great? YACM has its answer. YACM develops great communities by developing greater kids.
Children who are NOT enrolled in quality music education are 4 times less likely to experience recognition for academic achievement and 3 times less likely to win an award based upon diligence and perseverance.
S.B. Heath, 1999, cited in National Endowment for the Arts 2011 White Papers, “The Arts and Human Development”, p.22
The Margaret Beelard Foundation has generously partnered with YACM to unleash the potential in our children and youth. Young Artists Conservatory of Music is a community of families, donors, faculty, and staff that come together to make great changes in the lives of children. We teach them the sensitivity, confidence, diligence and beauty in making music. The Margaret Beelard Foundation has provided generous funding to build a community of string musicians and a youth orchestra.
The research is showing that learning to play an instrument (in a quality setting) leads to changes in a child’s brain that no other activity is proven to create. Musically trained children are more likely to reach their full cognitive and academic potential.
