MeMA’s Philosophy

MeMA-Music, created for youth from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and abilities, was founded on three basic principles:

  1.  A deep conviction that young people have the potential and vision to change the world.
  2.  The exploration of socially- conscious music can become the vehicle for self-expression of young people’s values and beliefs.
  3.  Education grounded in historical awareness, encourages habits of mind that are necessary for learning how to solve problems, create and innovate, communicate clearly and collaborate with others.
