Board Meetings will continue the second Friday of each month.
YACCB will be performing an evening of music and learning for the SMARTS participants and their families on Thursday, April 11th at 6:00 pm at their at their downtown Youngstown location in the Ohio One Building at 25 East Boardman Street.
As adult musicians we know first-hand the benefits of playing musical instruments especially with a group of other musicians. Research indicates the brain of a musician, even a young one, works differently than that of a non-musician. “There’s some good neuroscience research that children involved in music have larger growth of neural activity than people not in music training. When you’re a musician and you’re playing an instrument, you have to be using more of your brain,” says Dr. Eric Rasmussen, chair of the Early Childhood Music Department at the Peabody Preparatory of The Johns Hopkins University, where he teaches a specialized music curriculum for children aged two months to nine years.
YACCB is pleased that children are encouraged to learn to perform and develop a skill that can last throughout their lifetime.
Following a short family-friendly concert, we will introduce the audience to the different instruments in the band. Each child and their family members will then select an instrument that they wish to learn more about, such as percussion, flutes, or trumpets. This sectional time will be an opportunity for the children to learn more and to have a hands-on look at their instrument of choice. Our goal is to spark interest in instrumental music education.
“SMARTS is a community-based art school, helping to bridge the gap during and after school with arts curriculum that is unmatched in the region - a place where culture, design, and self-discovery are uniquely intertwined.” (from the SMARTS website)
