We are absolutely thrilled to announce a partnership with the San Diego Young Artists Music Academy!
Here is how SD-YAMA describes itself:
San Diego Young Artists Music Academy (SDYAMA) offers a wide variety of programs in vocal, instrumental, choir, dance and many other positive activities in a healthy and safe environment. Our programs help develop culturally relevant and artistic activities for our students that promotes positive self-esteem and good order and discipline for young people. We make youth aware of their potential for creative self-expression and development. We foster a continuing interest in music and arts as a future career. We are also exposing our students to positive images, interacting and understanding between different cultures.
The San Diego Young Artists Music Academy is a 501(c) (3) whose mission is to enhance the lives of youth through music education and performances as deterrents to the drugs, gangs and violence prevalent in their communities.
SD-YAMA has very kindly agreed to share the cost with us of providing professional music instruction for our ACT-SO music competitors. Not only is their financial contribution greatly appreciated, but they also have a pool of instructors at the ready, saving ACT-SO from having to find, recruit, screen and schedule such lessons. We are beyond delighted to have SD-YAMA aboard!
