Kids in a New Groove (K.I.N.G.) is a 501c3 non-profit that provides private music instruction to kids in the Texas foster care system by matching them with qualified music instructors.
Many people involved in our students' day to day life have seen a vast improvement in life skills once a student becomes involved with our program. School teachers, therapists, and foster parents have noticed the increase in self-esteem and confidence our students exhibit, as well as a willingness to become more readily involved in school and other healthy activities. Students also have shown an increased willingness to trust, as our teachers become a constant and steady influence in their life. We have had students transfer to as many as 4-5 schools and homes in a one-year period, and the support and encouragement from their music teacher is sometimes the only stable factor in their unpredictable circumstances. We are encouraged to see what a real difference music can make to a child who has suffered unimaginable neglect and abuse.
Any child that is currently in the Texas foster care system.
