Inspired by “El Sistema,” the international movement of music for social change, Kidznotes provides free-of-charge musical instruction after school for K-12 students in Durham and Wake Counties, and pre-K in Chapel Hill-Carrboro. 75% of Kidznotes students qualify for federal free and reduced lunch. All Kidznotes student musicians receive an instrument and up to 10 hours of music instruction each week, totaling 400 hours of rigorous, high quality instruction a year at no cost to our families. During the 2018-19 school year, Kidznotes enrolled 531 students from six Title I schools in Durham, five in Southeast Raleigh, and two in Chapel Hill-Carrboro. Kidznotes student musicians also participated in a 1-week summer camp, had opportunities to perform in conjunction with and learn from numerous guest artists, and performed at over 50 events for a total audience count of 5,000.
