WHO WE ARE
We believe in a world beyond the classroom and the neighborhood. We believe that the arts are the catalyst for a life of fulfillment and creativity. We believe that arts education should be available to everyone. We are LOUD and we believe in an artistic future.
The LOUD program is a non-profit program that provides high quality instruments and world-class music/film education to low-income Students in the United States. Free after-school music and film classes and an extensive online library of video lessons help students go from first notes to first performance.
This Is Why We Teach The Arts:
Not because we expect you to major in music or film.
Not because we expect you to play or direct all your life...
But So You Will Be Human
So you will recognize beauty
So you can be closer to an infinite beyond this world. So you will have something to cling to.
So you will have more Love, more Compassion, more Gentleness, more Good, -
In short, more LIFE.
