The Music Program
Both Classes having Group Rehersal
The Kirk Horn Music Fund currently provides music lessons at two Boys and Girls Club of Columbus locations. Each week at total of 24 students learn MUSIC!! Sounds of guitar, bass, percussion, drum set, and singing can be heard regularly at each BG Club.
Learning music takes time, the more time spent with instruments guided by dedicated and inspiring teachers will have a lasting effect on the youth. Our talented instructors teach 8 hours of guitar/bass and 2 hours of percussion each week (SINGING is encouraged all the time!!!).
Some of the students have been learning music for over 1 year, they are able to play the chords and melodies of popular songs, read music, play scales, and understand basic music theory.
