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 recognized by local and national education and service organizations such as California Department of Education, California District 18 Assembly and the Jefferson Award for Public Service to name a few.
You have the power to impact the lives of children through music education.
