How The Arts Changed My Life
How The Arts Change Other's Lives
"Keyboarding, Visual Art, Bucket Drumming, and Performing Arts were taught giving our scholars the opportunity to create original content. BSOMA also created opportunities to perform before thousands of people in external community performances; an experience our scholars would not have had." - Dr. B. Chavez Russell | Executive Director - Friendship Academy
“My son is truly inspired by your drum teacher and wants to be like him one day. Thank you for this amazing opportunity!!!” - Ria Tidwell Moore
“We ALL need to start taking care of each other. This man is doing great work and taking care of the kids. That’s what it’s all about! Please, check this out.” - Sandee Jean
“Thank you for walking in your purpose. You have been a blessing to our family and we are grateful.” – Devrae Gilreath Hudson
"BSOMA has been a gift to our family. We are thrilled at the growth we have seen in our daughter during her time there. They see your strengths and areas for growth and then tailor the work to meet your specific needs. She has recorded, performed in front of 1,200 people at the Ordway, and went on a college visit with BSOMA. We look forward to hear continued growth." - Allison Breininger
Since 2017 we have served 1000s of students across the Twin Cities Metro Area.
Help us continue to impact and change the lives of even more students in Minneapolis.
