Music Programs for Kids
SONG provides free musical education for children and youth in Northumberland County.
Through music, SONG members learn social engagement and development, inclusiveness, and leadership, opening doors and helping them achieve brighter futures.
For children and youth ages 7 and up, SONG's string program is a fun, audition-free group that offers violin, viola, and cello options, with a focus on social development through the pursuit of musical excellence.
SONGtech is a music and technology program for students in grades 7-10. SONGtech students have the opportunity to talk about and listen to music, compose their own beats, learn user-friendly audio technology programs on iPads, and engineer, mix, and record music.
In addition to helping students to increase their musicianship, the program also aims to help students develop resilience, teamwork skills, problem-solving and coping skills, and to increase their self-awareness and understanding of others.
"Music changes lives. Music has an impact on how children and youth develop."
