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 in grades K-12 in under-resourced communities throughout Alameda and Oakland, California.
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.
Bay Area Music Project has been widely praised by local and national media outlets including The Drew Barrymore Show, CBS News, KPIX, KTVU, KQED, The East Bay Times to name a few.
You have the power to impact the lives of children through music education.
