C.Y.M.B.A.L. - COLORADO YOUTH IN MUSIC BENEFITS ACADEMIC LEARNING
COLORADO YOUTH IN MUSIC BENEFITS ACADEMIC LEARNING
“Every student in the nation should have an education in the arts.”…MENC Music Educators National Conference
The benefits conveyed by music education can be grouped in four categories:
- Success in society
- Success in school
- Success in developing intelligence
- Success in life
Music education in our schools has been jeopardized or eliminated due to the huge cuts in funding throughout the state. Pro Players Association is working with several local music professionals developing a music academy for youth in Colorado. The academy would be a nonprofit branch of our organization, offering an introduction to music and teaching instrumental lessons to disadvantaged, disabled, and at-risk youth. These children are the ones who have been most affected by the budget cuts in the school system's low income areas. The programs "Put a Horn in Your Hand", “Go Strum Around”, "Stick It", and “Finger Those Keys” will help to get those kids acquainted and familiarized with musical possibilities through discipline, respect, responsibility, and success.

Donations of new and gently used musical instruments will be accepted at the concert.
