Buddy Band is an inclusive, musical after-school program that seeks to break down barriers between typically functioning children and those with diverse abilities.
“Buddies” will be created by pairing diverse learners and typical learners, and they will be encouraged to learn about each other and support each other through fun, engaging musical activities and small group times. Buddy Band members will show off their hard work and new relationships through a final virtual performance! No prior experience is needed for participation in this new, exciting ensemble!
All participants will receive a ChiME Time Instrument bucket which includes 2 rhythm sticks, 2 egg shakers, 2 wrist bells, and 1 movement scarf, as well as a Glockenspiel with mallets.
This is a FREE program.
Generously funded by the
Ralla Klepak Foundation for Education in the Performing Arts
