The Bahama Village Music Program
The Bahama Village Music Program is now in it’s 21st year of giving free musical education and instruction to children aged 6 to 16 in our community. BVMP is more than just an educational institution, our program creates a great sense of community spirit and pride, fosters important mentor relationships between local teenage musicians and their students, encourages parent participation, and enhances student’s self-esteem. Our target community, Bahama Village, is rich in cultural history and community involvement, inspiring our students to become not only better musicians, but also better human beings. Bahama Village Music Program’s mission is to provide quality music education to children who would otherwise not have access to private music instruction.
Over 200 enrolled students receive lessons by our 15 student teachers, professional instructors and dedicated volunteers. Bahama Village Music Program’s student teachers are musically gifted high school students, many of whom honed their musical ability at BVMP. A young staff inspires younger students to practice their instrument daily, with the goal of being as musical as their teenage teacher. The student teachers also foster mentor like relationships with their students, some which last through college and beyond. This unique aspect of the music program enables the students to connect with each other through their shared love of music.
Bahama Village Music Program is also dedicated to giving the gift of music back to the community, through several free recitals and concerts throughout the school year. Our most recent recital was attended by over 50 local music lovers, some of whom were moved to tears at the dedication and pure musical ability of our students. Videos of this recital can be viewed on our Facebook page. The “House of Pan” steel pan band recently performed at a fundraiser for another local non-profit. These concerts serve to showcase the teacher’s dedication and the students musical talent and have an added benefit of bringing unity and joy to our community.
Your support would be greatly appreciated and will help to ensure our continued success and cultural benefits for those who otherwise would not be able to enjoy the rewards that accrue with the addition of music and dance to each young person’s life. Help us continue to give the gift of music to these wonderful students. Every child deserves the opportunity to experience the joy of music.
