Educational Value

The Purpose of the Cincinnati Music and Arts Program is to improve lives, strengthen communities and foster civic engagement through performance, service and volunteering. The Cincinnati Music and Arts Program is designed to involve school-age children 5-18yrs in community-based music programs that provide direct and demonstrable educational experiences in music. CMAP has launched the Cincinnati Stars Marching Band to provide youth with a foundation in all instrumental areas introducing many to what we hope to be a life-long interest in music and art education. Focusing on the Over-the- Rhine area, the West End, and the Cincinnati area at large; such activities is a great way to minimize juvenile crime while refocusing energies in creative outlets. CMAP will be teaching these students that music is a universal language; because it inspires common human feelings and bridges gaps between cultures that spoken languages cannot. No matter what race, culture, or religion; music also creates a universal community. We believe that CMAP will broadly-implement music/art skills in programs such as the Cincinnati Stars Marching Band and will have the potential to transform the lives of many struggling youths in Over the Rhine, and other underserved communities and to those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, and disable. Language literacy is arguably the most important skill a child will acquire during preschool and elementary school years. Comprehending concepts taught in social studies and sciences, or even understanding a word problem in math class, all depend on reading fluency. Unfortunately, in the push to ready children for careers that depend on knowledge of these fields, many school districts have cut the field that could hold the key to them all– music. Rhythm, rhyme, and melody aid memorization. This is especially true for language learning, as music and language processing take place in the same area of the brain. Jazz musicians “trading fours” are engaging in the same process we do when we hold a conversation: they are processing aural information and composing an appropriate response.
