Learn Music, Love Learning

Community Partnership Programs – Spotlight on:

The SAFE Alliance Early Childhood Music education for mothers and their children is at the heart of what we bring to The SAFE Alliance, whose vision is a just and safe community free from violence and abuse. One of our earliest community partnerships, now in its 16th year, has been with SafePlace, which has now merged with Austin Children’s Shelter to become The SAFE Alliance or SAFE | stop abuse for everyone. We continue our focus on the therapeutic nature of music as a healing force, featuring music appreciation, playful movement activities, and instrumental jam sessions for children. ACMS has expanded its weekly music and enrichment programming into the University of Texas University Charter School at George M. Kozmetsky for kindergarten through 8th grade. Documented results include increased cognitive development, a greater interest in learning, and improved quality of life and self-expression.
