Benefits of Musical Education

Amped Kids wants to inspire in every student a life-long love of music. Studies show that beginning musical study at an early age helps develop parts of the brain that control language and reasoning. Music education along with music therapy promote emotional healing and overall wellness. Listening to music or playing an instrument reduces stress and anxiety.

Our music programs for foster children are designed to offer a wide range of music education opportunities for children ages 5 to 18.  Whether your foster child is interested in taking private lessons, being in their middle or high school band or would benefit from music therapy, we offer each child an opportunity to learn valuable life skills, find their purpose and build self-confidence all the while having a mentor on their journey.
