Community Help in Music Education (CHIME)



OUR MISSION IS...

...to mobilize community resources to promote, provide and build connections through music education for DC students, during and outside of school.


OUR GOALS:

  • Having music included in the required DC school curriculum, as a discipline and integrated into the academic curriculum, supported and enriched by CHIME programs.
  • Enlisting community support for school bands, orchestras and choruses.
  • Promoting and providing accessible ongoing after-school music instruction.
  • Promoting and providing training in music incorporation for early childhood education providers.
  • Establishing joint music projects between schools that help build community.
  • Providing qualitatively richer lives for inner-city children, and connection to our multi-cultural heritage, through exposure to many forms of music and the opportunity to learn how to produce it themselves.
  • Helping to build the character traits and skills needed for successful lives, careers and citizenship through participation in music ensembles.
