We believe music can be a powerful tool to encourage empathy towards others and pride in one’s own culture. All children benefit from learning to be culturally aware, to appreciate the differences among us, and to acknowledge the diversity within other cultures. For Latino and other BIPOC children it’s especially important to have opportunities to see positive role models who look like them and to experience programming that celebrates their language and background.
Our program incorporates Spanish words and showcases different Latin sounds, while emphasizing multiculturalism and encouraging children to be respectfully inquisitive about others and their stories.
