NM Jazz Workshop's South Valley Band Project
"Quality afterschool programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn, and help working families. Every New Mexico family that needs an afterschool program should have access to one.&" - Jodi Grant, Executive Director, New Mexico After School Alliance
The South Valley Band Project provides free arts programming to low-income South Valley middle school students during out-of-school hours. Professional musicians teach group classes and provide individual attention to middle school students who want to learn to make music. Instruction includes music appreciation, rhythm, melody, harmony and ensemble playing. The South Valley Band Project is focused on helping keep middle school students engaged and on-track in school and out of trouble – all while learning new skills and having fun playing music.
The South Valley Band Project has joined the Berklee City Music Network, a national network of institutions offering the Berklee PULSE™ music method to under-served teens at no cost to them.
