How We Strive to Better Corona

In only four years, the Corona Youth Music Project (CYMP or Núcleo Corona) has grown from a small 15 person bucket band to a program that provides over 200 children with the opportunity to participate in orchestra and choir.  Núcleo Corona provides classes and instruments free of charge so that all children, regardless of their family's financial background, can have access to high quality music education.

Classes are provided each day after school not only to teach children how to play and sing, but to actually initiate social change from within the community.  In each child's musical ensemble they are taught skills that will help them be successful both inside and out of the program such as how to problem solve, set goals, and develop a work strategy in order to help them obtain these goals.  Children also gain confidence in themselves as they are placed in teaching roles from the time they learn their first notes and are continually challenged to reach the highest level of excellence possible.  Our focus is placed on ensemble learning so that each child realizes the responsibility of knowing his own part as well as helping his peers succeed. 

Be Part of Our Movement

Our children our doing a tremendous job, and in order to maintain and expand this program, we need your help!  Your generous contribution will provide our children with classes throughout the week in order to give them an intense and thorough musical experience.  With your support, other members of our community will now have the opportunity to learn music and positively impact those around them.

By joining the Corona Youth Music Project's campaign, not only can you feel proud to be apart this social movement, but you are also in for some really snazzy perks!  Have you ever wanted to learn an instrument?  Now is the time!  Not only are we offering special CYMP stickers and T-shirts, but to our most generous supporters you will also have the opportunity to receive a lesson with one of our esteemed faculty members or even have one of them give a personalized concert in your home!

Give and Share the Music

So what exactly does your contribution provide for the young musicians of CYMP?

For only $15, you can fund one child's participation in the Corona Children's Choir summer program.  Are you a fan of chamber music?  For only $50 you can give a child the opportunity to participate in CYMP's first ever chamber music camp.  A $75 contribution will fund a continuing student's participation in the orchestra for one year and for $200 you can support a new child's year of learning -- tiny violin included!

Sometimes we have the opportunity to play with neighboring El Sistema programs.  You can help make these trips possible by donating $500 to cover transportation costs. 

Perhaps at this point you are really excited and ready to have a dramatic impact on our community.  A whole year of classes for Team Mozart, our beginning violinists, can be provided for only $1500 and one of our advanced strings classes for $3000.  

Give today, show your love for music, and share your belief that social change can occur through high quality music education.
