Our mission is to nurture the love and literacy of music in children's classrooms and lives through their active participation in weekly classroom lessons presented by trained MFMII music docents who are community volunteers. MFMII also provides performance opportunities for children at school sites and on professional stages in the community.
Children need music for healthy development and academic success. Children and classroom teachers enthusiastically welcome MFMII docents into the classroom for fun-filled, engaging music lessons involving singing/signing songs, rhythmic movement/dance, instrumentation, and listening appreciation. Teachers remain in the classroom while docents teach and also learn how to integrate music into their curriculum areas.
