Be Creative! Make your own music! Explore Musical Instruments! Find your Voice!

Musical Beacons brings families with children of all ages and backgrounds together to write new music and songs inspired by their neighborhood, their identity and the world around them. Parents and children get involved on an equal level, giving families a platform to learn and create together, and inviting them to make music a part of their daily lives.

We wanted to thank you everyone who joined us at our Youth Music Project in Bow! See you next time!
