In partnership with the City of Palmdale, Music and Kids is working to provide one-on-one music education with paid, qualified instructors to students in Palmdale. Through this partnership, Music and Kids will administer all music programs at the City of Palmdale’s Gabriel’s House.
For more than five years, Gabriel’s House has provided free musical instruments, equipment and instruction to youth ages 8 to 18, thanks to financial donations by groups such the Warnack Foundation and the AV Business Expo. Instructors have volunteered their time. In spring 2019, the Gabriel’s House program will move from the Neighborhood House location on 6th St. East to its new location at Courson Arts Colony East, located at 939 East Avenue Q-12 in Palmdale.
Under the new partnership, Fundraising for the Gabriel’s House music programs will be conducted and administered by Music and Kids. Music and Kids will take the lead in providing quality instruction and programming at no charge to the participating youth.
Fundraising efforts are underway to provide adequate staffing to meet the needs and provide learning opportunities for the students. Donations for Gabriel’s House programming may be made at www.musicandkids.org. The first promotional event will take place at the Antelope Valley Business Expo on Saturday, May 18, 9AM – 7PM, at the Antelope Valley Mall. This event is presented by Ventura Graphix, Music and Kids, City of Palmdale, and Antelope Valley Mall to raise funds for Music and Kids and music programs at Gabriel’s House.
