Let's Make Some Noise!
Band In A Bus, made possible through a partnership with Elementz, aims to bus the performing arts to communities in need.
We find that music plays a big part inside, and outside of the band room. On average students who participate in music related programs score higher on standardized tests and develop positive social emotional skills that can point them towards a more creative future.
By providing musical instruments, performing arts curriculum, and staffing--we hope to offer a hip, modernized band classroom experience that will bridge the performing arts gap facing youth in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.
Band In A Bus currently provides programming to 70 students across 8 schools involving music, podcasting and digital media production. Next semester can be even louder--with a little help from our friends!
