Connecting Thru Music is a 501( c )- 3 with a mission to provide music therapy and music programs to children with special needs throughout Duval County. Research supports that children with special needs have increased learning success socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically with music therapy. Connecting Thru Music provides music classes 3 times weekly with a board certified music therapist and a music teacher at Neptune Beach and Mandarin Oaks Elementary Schools. CTM reaches over 180 children with moderate to severe special needs in 23 classrooms between the 2 schools. Because of our unique approach which combines curriculum, goals and core words, teachers ,parents, staff and the music professionals are noting increased learning and that children are speaking their first words, able to attend for longer periods of time and are interested in learning. Also the joy-is beautiful!!! The annual cost of the program is $200,000 for these 2 schools and a child can receive a school year of this vital teaching tool for $1,250. BUT we need your assistance. A generous grant from the Kids Hope Alliance is enabling CTM to provide after-school and holiday/summer camp classes. We still need $80,000 to continue the in-school program this year.
We can provide teaching though music to over 180 children for a full school year with your help.
