Music For F.U.N.

(Fundamental Understanding of Notes)

​"The Music Invasion"

This is the flagship program of BTNF's "Music Invasion" that is designed to quickly engage and educate youth in the world of musical art in a fun-filled manner fused with expressive therapy. BTNF travels onsite to provide this great experience for our youth. The beauty of this program is that youth, regardless of their experience, will go through the Music for F.U.N. curriculum and finish with a fundamental understanding of music theory, songwriting, and the expressive therapy that it provides.

 

WHAT WILL OUR YOUTH LEARN? The curriculum consist of three segments:

 

  • Introduction to the World of Rhythm in which youth will gain an understanding of rhythm theory as it relates to musical styles that our youth already enjoy.

  • Introduction to the World of Harmony in which youth will gain an understanding of harmony as it relates to the piano, while exploring basic aspects of ear training.

  • Introduction to the World of Songwriting & Production in which youth will gain an understanding of songwriting and explore their own expression and creativity.

 

Program Goals: When the program is finished, each participant will have 

  • Created their own song

  • Interfaced with industry professionals through workshops and clinics

  • Demonstrated/Showcased a musical skill in the community

  • Obtained a higher level of excitement and appreciation for music and the expressive therapy that it provides. 

 

This program is good for After School Programs, Recreation Centers, and Summer Camps looking to add a music arts enrichment component to the already amazing activities and support provided to our youth.
