Peace!

Welcome to the music intervention site! Here we will explore the methods of using the power of music  to create a pro-social effect in youth programs and how grassroots organizations are currently fostering these techniques globally.

Music or “sound” is a living force in every culture, religion, and nationalistic tradition. It can define the individual, and yet embrace the collective connection between an individual within a wider community(ies).

Music education is continually recognized in the neural sciences and in sociological studies as a beneficiary attribute to improved academic and personal achievement, heightened understanding of social interactions and conflict resolution, and actualized “risky” situations like performances in front of family and peers.

The intersection of youth empowerment, music education, and conflict transformation has yet to be fully explored on a theoretical level, though already conducted at a grassroots level internationally. Further investigation is needed to create sustainable and adaptable music intervention curriculums based on theory and practice that can mobilize youth to instill change in their communities.

  1. My wife Evelyn (Royalady) and I saw your Website this afternoon. We were moved, and wanted to at least reach out to offer the resources on our website. It’s a free website of music, with children in mind in as much as there are free sheet music downloads with orchestral accompaniment that permit the student to play along with an orchestra. I don’t know if this is something that would be of benefit, but we had to at least let you know.

    Please do visit our website to review the music. Be sure to have your speakers turned on so you can hear the music when you arrive. It will load automatically when you visit the site. There is about a half an hour that will play upon your arrival, and much more you can download to listen to or play on your own instrument. Be sure to check out the CDs at the bottom of the website. If you follow these CD links and click on the first item of each CD,, (it should be 0.moz) the entire CD will play. The website is primarily educational and performance stuff, but there are a lot of fun things a player can do. Check it out, and remember. It’s all free, just trying to give back a little and say thank you for your efforts..

    Best Wishes, and thank you again for what you do, so very much.
