The mission of the Hendrix Music Academy is to provide Music Education, Intervention and Mentoring programs to At-risk youth so that they can achieve their highest potential as musicians, leaders and global citizens. The Hendrix Music Academy is a place that gives young people the opportunity to learn how to express themselves musically, in an educational and safe environment. It is our belief that if we give the youth of our community a “voice,” we can reduce their participation in illegal activities and violence. Youth will learn how to create and record their own musical expressions. Youth participants will work as a team and learn important social skills while learning about music production in a professional recording studio.
