This Summer BGCD has taken a whole new approach to music instruction with a new virtual component added to on-site lessons for members ages 10-18. Thanks to our partners at the Music & Youth Initiative who stepped up during this time to provide equipment for members to take home. Currently 24 members are taking 2 lessons a week for 60 minutes in Piano, Guitar, Drums, Bass and Sax. In addition, Music & Youth are providing Home Studio Kits for self-recording and on the go Mobile Studios which are part of the Teen program.
A big thank you to our long-time partner, Music & Youth Initiative, for always meeting the needs of our youth and to ensure our members have the opportunity to engage in music exploration and instruction during these unprecedented times.
