Our Vision of the Standing Rock Youth Music Program is to help the youth to cope, heal, and thrive through musical exploration. The Standing Rock Youth Music Program will provide “Music as Therapy” sessions, where youth participate in drum circles and sing-along groups that celebrate the therapeutic aspects of music. Song-writing workshops and rock band camps will also be provided to allow the youth to learn to play instruments, write songs and record them. The Youth Music Program will also provide artist mentorship with some of the teachers as well as older students mentoring younger students with their artistic development.
The Standing Rock Youth Music Program will work with youth who would otherwise not have opportunities to learn music due to challenges such as living in the foster care system, experiencing mental health issues, exhibiting extreme behaviors, or coming from families with limited economic means. The Youth Music Program will partner with tribal agencies focused on the youth and schools around the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in order to provide music education programs to these children.
