ACAM's Winter Session Youth
ACAM engages youth early, beginning at 4, and gives them a positive alternative before they enter their teens and are faced with jobs, family responsibilities, and the lure of the streets. This is vitally important because children from low income families who spend their after-school time in supervised, nurturing settings have been found to have fewer socioemotional problems, and thus have better mental health. With public spaces no longer safe for children's out-of-school time, being on their own is stressful and unproductive. ACAM engages youth in after-school activities that continue into middle and high school.

My son David has been attending ACAM since the summer of 2018. He has taken musicianship, drums, guitar, chorus, and theater classes. ACAM has helped my son in many ways. He has gotten so much confidence in himself, his grades improved in the last year so that he has been awarded student of the month twice. His teacher showed me his advancement in different subjects, but especially one caught my attention, Arts/Theater. He got 4, the highest grade.
He was the only boy in his class that played one of the main characters in the Lion King Jr., a play offered in his school. He was Zazu. He got so many compliments from the teachers and the public in general, and I know that all that confidence he projected, he got from the classes he took at ACAM. From speaking in public, singing, and being able to communicate effectively is something that we thank ACAM for.
I am and I will always be thankful for such a program that offers more than music to so many children.
Passion! I see it in the eyes of six year olds proudly carrying their violins into class. I see it in Daisy who really wanted to come for cello class instead of going to her school event. I see it in the four to six years olds who are so excited to go to theatre class and to sing songs.
Students glimpse the joy of creating music with their guitars, flutes, recorders, trumpets and trombones and are excited to see where it will take them. In recital and at the showcases, pianists, drummers, and dancers show their passion as they perform and share what they have learned!
The passion spills over to other areas of their lives. Read the story below where a mother tells about her son and his passion.
