What We Do
Music Box Foundation is a family run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established in 2011. We provide music education, dance, audio/video recording technology, mentoring and workforce development programs to underserved children, youth, young adults, and students with disabilities. Since our founding, we have served over 10,000 youth primarily from low-income communities giving access to and participation in music instruction as a creative endeavor, building critical thinking skills, team building and leadership development. The students learn music literacy, music theory, and how to perform popular songs as well as compose their own music and songs on a variety of instruments including percussions, woodwinds, guitar and keyboard. Students also have an opportunity to shadow engineers where they learn how to use sound boards and other equipment both in a studio environment and during live performances. Students learn how to operate video cameras, learn about lighting, production, reproduction and storytelling. Our goal is to unify and strengthen our communities, provide inspiration and purpose to our youth and promote violence prevention by providing a safe space for our students to be their creative selves.
