Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Music Changing Lives provides a fully equipped, state-of-the-art, recording studio utilized to teach our youth the basics of recording and producing quality music. Our mission is, “To teach our participants they can live beyond their current reality.” Parents are looking for a place to take their children to play and learn in a safe, enriching environment. They realize that to leave their children unsupervised and without vision is to court disaster. The myriad of components in our program allow children to be actively involved in something positive and productive each day after school, thereby allowing their parents to be sufficed knowing their child is secure and thriving while they are at work. In turn, the parent has a reduced stress level and increased productivity, as well as reduced absenteeism on the job. This results in a win-win situation for children, parents, employers, and communities.

Results: MCL has proven it’s a result driven organization focused on fine arts as an incentive program. Not only have we completed our first compellation album, we also have plans of hosting our first art gallery within just six months of having a physical location to service our youth.  At our community center located in Redlands, CA.  Most importantly, 40% of our students have improved their grade point average by an average of 1 point, significantly improving their chances of graduation.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 300 or more

MCL has truly inspired me to begin my own organization with helping children. I love how MCL is touching multiple children lives with music. Children are the future and I applaud MCL for striving to change their lives. As I would volunteer events, you can just see the passionate individuals who've worked hard with their music. MCL is truly blessed and I hope the best for this organization to grow and flourish.

This program is an amazing idea and should be mimicked by other groups/organizations. Unfortunately, as a previous employer, I have little faith that this company will succeed. The CEO in charge of the program does not put effort into hiring the right people to work with the children nor do they know their politics enough to follow the law. I think that the idea of the company is fantastic - which is why I worked there - but until the person in charge puts effort into hiring qualified staff to make this a non-profit legit and law abiding, it's not going to succeed.

Music Changing Lives has been really inspiring and very encouraging to the children of Moreno Valley. Throughout the time that I have been working there, I have seen children grow in their talents. Whether it is through art, dance, and music, the children have a lot of fun and learn within a few months. MCL also provides programs that educate the children in not only with homework help, but also with college information regarding application, eligibility and opportunity options. It's always a pleasure to see the kids feel encouraged to pursue their dreams.

Music Changing Lives has been one of the most beneficial and positive impacts on my life. Without having had the opportunity to be an artist in the program back in 2010, I don't believe I would have found a way to continue pursuing my musical career endeavors. This organization has since then expanded to helping youth in other forms of art, such as painting, fashion and film. This program is a truly great program for any youth seekers to find their potential in any dreams they have, but not only that, as well as to better themselves as people. For if an individual can rise to the challenge of following their passions and follow through, that Individual builds character in themselves. Thank you Music Changing Lives for what you have done for me, Franklin Barnes, in my time of need and may many future students continue to find success through your program's tutelage.
