various multicultural influences from around the world
Our mission at Armelle for Kids LLC. is to bring music as a healing tool to those who need it the most: mothers and children/teenagers at domestic violence shelters, non-profit organizations working directly with underprivileged families, orphanages, refugee camps, and schools in disaster areas.
We bring them instruments as a means to express their hopes and release their fears. Sounds, lyrics, beats, rhythmic patterns all play a role in children's cognitive and emotional development. Music and languages purge grief and heal hearts.
We put the adults in their world in charge of the music program after we leave. They make the program sustainable and keep their musical heritage alive while setting up an outlet for their youth to meet, speak and grow.
Bridges are thus built. Beyond our differences, we all have the same core values.
Closer to home we offer education through music and language through our various programs offered at schools, daycare centers, ibraries and community centers. We also perform concerts at various events and festivals to promote an appreciation in children for multicultural music, instruments and culture.
