After School Care Options
Alameda Music Project
Alameda Music Project is an El Sistema inspired youth orchestra and academic achievement program providing children access to inspirational music education. All students participating in AMP receive high-quality music instruction, academic support, and a nutritious snack 5 days a week plus all necessary musical supplies (instruments, song books, etc). We provide children with musical instruction (choir, violin, cello, percussion, and music exploration) and performance experiences in a collaborative, orchestral environment that helps build confidence, compassion, and teamwork. Children learn the importance of collaboration and cooperation in and outside the ensemble; they learn how to become one voice, and through their shared experience, grow stronger as individuals and as a community.Location: Maya Lin School Days: Monday through Friday Times: After school until 6:00 p.m. Non-Student Days: Alameda Music Project will be closed.
