Bring Back The Music
Bring Back The Music is a performing arts education program. The purpose of the program is the creation and operation of a community based performing arts teaching laboratories accessible to low income and disadvantaged youth. We are an Oklahoma City based 501 (c) (3) corporation.
Bring Back The Music provides quality performing arts education to students in central Oklahoma.
Recently, schools across America have decreased the programs offered to students due to declining budgets. Usually, the programs affected are performing arts. In Oklahoma, school boards face growing challenges due to reduced revenue thus putting arts programs in an even more precarious situation.
The demise of the performing arts programs is harmful to all students. It is particularly harmful to low-income and socially disadvantaged children because they don’t have the resources to participate in these programs elsewhere.
To fill this void, Bring Back The Music was created. Students who participate in the arts have a greater success rate in school and in life. Performing arts instill ‘foundation skills’ needed for employment like reasoning, thinking creatively, and visualizing.
What’s happening at Bring Back The Music
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, and Oklahoma’s Congressional representatives for their support of the arts through CARES Act funding. As a result of their endeavors Bring Back The Music was awarded an Oklahoma CARES grant. This grant allows us to continue providing quality performing arts education and training to the youth of eastern Oklahoma County.
As our motto states, Bring Back The Music……. “Training a new generation of rock stars!!”
