Because we work with youth in foster care, Music Mentors must be 18 or older and willing to make a year-long commitment with weekly, half- hour lessons.
"As a teacher, I have been greatly influenced by my association with KING. The specialized training and workshops they provide have given me priceless insight and perspective and have made me a more thoughtful and effective mentor. I have witnessed first hand the powerful influence that music can have on a child’s confidence and self-esteem, as well as their intellectual and emotional health and development."
-Alan Retamozo, KING Mentor
"Foster children often lack the stable environment that is so crucial in a child’s life. With KING, they strive to stay with the children as long as possible having their teacher come to them, whether or not their living environment is stable or ever-changing."
-Missy Hance, past KING mentor
