Infinite Music headed to the mountains this past August to be part of the 23rd Annual Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesapalooza in Mammoth Lakes, CA. This long-standing four-day festival was attended by over 6000 people and featured Grammy Award-winning performers and some of the best craft brewers in the country. Along with that illustrious lineup of performers the Mammoth Husky Club Ukulele Kids opened this year’s festival on the big stage with a song they wrote with their instructor Leina’ala Kailiawa.
Looking back on 2017, I am so thrilled that Infinite Music was able to bring free ukulele group music lessons to over fifty elementary children through our grassroots Makin’ Music After School program. None of the kids in this program had access to music lessons previously, and probably never would without this special opportunity.
Someone recently mentioned to me they love the name of this nonprofit as it relates to our mission to empower young people through music, and I wholeheartedly agree. The infinity symbol originates from the Latin word, “infinitas” which means “unboundedness.” It draws from its ancient understanding as the symbol for eternal value, empowerment and everlasting love. Simply put, that’s the core of Infinite Music’s enduring message: when we’re introduced to music as children, the benefits stay with us for life. There are no boundaries with Infinite Music.
We are so excited to share with you Infinite Music’s™ very first blog entry! Since 2013, as a 100% volunteer organization, we have been keeping our heads down raising funds and developing free music programs for deserving kids. Why music? Because we know music is the vehicle that allows youth to learn and grow. Tons of research validates that music is the one subject that improves reading and math skills, teaches history, stimulates creativity, gives youth a voice, and encourages them to be part of a team. And no one loses when they play music!
