OUR MUSIC PLAYS ON
MIMA Music is a 501c3 non-profit that aims to engage and enrich communities through songwriting and music improvisation. We do so primarily by providing year-round music programming through schools and community organizations. As our partner organizations shut their doors over the past weeks, MIMA has had to suspend its spring programming. In many cases, these were the only musical enrichment available to our students, and they were a significant source of income for the Teaching Artists who delivered them.
In response, we are working with our community partners to move as many spring programs as possible online. We are providing free music-making activities derived from MIMA's curriculum for families to do at home. And we are retaining as many of our Teaching Artists as possible to refine our programming and training in preparation for when we can step back into the classroom.
In these bleak and uncertain times, we hope to provide a bit of structure and vibrancy and build a musical connection over the physical distance that separates us. We will also sustain our community of Teaching Artists and make the necessary preparations to reenter the classroom with even more effective programs when the day arrives. We'd appreciate your support in these efforts.
