Bay Area Music Project (BAMP) is a non-profit, social change through music in- and after-school program serving the social, emotional, cultural and academic needs of children. Alameda Music Project, the flagship chapter program operates 5 days per week, providing on-site music instruction and academic support to over 160 children in Kindergarten through eighth grade, in the socioeconomically diverse West End of Alameda, California. A new, innovative string and digital media production middle school program launched in September of 2019 at a Title 1 STEAM middle school in Alameda.
At BAMP, no child or family is ever turned away because of financial limitations. All students participating receive high-quality music instruction in both small group and orchestra settings plus all necessary musical supplies (instruments, song books, etc), a nutritious snack and academic support during the school year. We empower children to discover their highest potential through musical instruction 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.
You have the power to impact the lives of children through music education.
