As a parent of the American Children Orchestra, I am very grateful with the program. My daughter, Cindy Pascual is overly excited. She looks forward to attending class and within less than a year has fluently learned the language of music, which has improved her academic skills.

I will
also like to extend my gratitude to Maria, the program cordinator, who's dedication inspire us on a day to day.

I am a parent who came from Peru. Let’s be real, where else but in America can you go and have poor children get lessons by skilled and educated instructors for free. Especially in neighborhoods where most of the time people struggle to keep their lights.

My name is Norma Calderon
and my three children attend this music program since 2005 ACOP music instructors become caring and supportive mentors to my children and others who desperately need positive role models.
Children’s activities include free music lessons in one-on-one and small-group sessions, group rehearsals, full orchestra rehearsals, and public orchestra concerts in non-school hours.
Everyone who reads this should be digging in their pocket to give something to help them.
Thanks!

I love this Foundation due to the fact that ACOP’s public performances are wonderful means of boosting children’s self-confidence. Since all performances are group productions (80-child orchestras are not unusual), children also bond with one another.
These performances and activities create bonds across cultural bridges and enhance ties in neighboring communities

I have been involved with American Children’s Orchestras for Peace in a variety of capacities for many years. I have attended as a volunteer and as a parent, events, rehearsal, and Music Festivals with the involvement of Miami Mayor and other dignitaries and I have great respect for what they do and why they do it. The program has made a great impact on my family as my three children have received music instruction for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that American Children’s Orchestras for Peace saved my children from being involved with street gangs and other violent activities.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I have known of the organization from its inception. I have seen it grow from a dream to a life changing reality for thousands of children, their families and the communities they live in.



There are many important reasons for supporting the American Children's Orchestras for Peace;
violence prevention, improve cognitive abilities, create commmunity and so on, but the number one factor is the joy the participating children exhibit.



ACOP steps up to the challenge of providing an alternative to poverty and violence. The free music lessons and instruments as well as the bonding experience from the orchestras makes a real difference in the lives of the children. This is an outstanding organization and program.

ACOP is a positive contribution to the well-being of Miami-Dade County. I've personally seen it grow from its first efforts in an elementary school to a county wide presence. Strategic partnerships have helped the program grow and reach its present numbers. It is impressive to see the turnout for the ACOP Children for Peace Music Concert. Thousands attend, it is widely covered by local, national and internation media and supported by civic leaders.

Secure, reliable funding is needed to be able to reliably grow the organization.
