Music and Kids (www.musicandkids.org) is a newly-formed 501(c)(3) non-profit organization started by singer-songwriter and performing artist Chuck Murphy, who resides in Palmdale, California, in the heart of the Antelope Valley. At the 2017 Almond Blossom Festival, Chuck Murphy was presented with the Quartz Hill Chamber's Person of the Year Award for his service to the community. Murphy's tradition of service continues with the formation of Music and Kids and its contributions to the communities in the Antelope Valley and beyond.

The mission of Music and Kids is to bridge the growing gap between government-funded educational programs in music and private funding.

In keeping with their mission, the first initiative by the Music and Kids organization involves providing one-on-one, after-school music instruction to 1,000 middle and high school students starting in the Antelope Valley of California and expanding to Southern California. To get this started, the first promotion, the Jr. Star Search Competition, will be a karaoke-style singing competition at the Almond Blossom Festival, hosted by the Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce, on March 10th and 11th, 2018 in George Lane Park, Lancaster, CA. The Jr. Star Search Competition will involve 50 student performers enrolled in grades 6-12 (ages 12-18) in schools located in the Antelope Valley and 10 six-month scholarships will be awarded at the event. Registrations will be accepted through February 9, 2018. The application can be found online at www.musicandkids.org.

Joining Music and Kids as a celebrity judge for the Jr. Star Search Competitio is Carnie Wilson of multi-platinum award winning Wilson Phillips and Love Bites by Carnie® (https://lovebitesbycarnie.com).

A second promotion is planned for the Coachella Valley region of California later in the spring of 2018.

Music and Kids will expand these efforts throughout Southern California and eventually nationwide in coming years. As the program expands, Music and Kids will visit schools all over the United States to raise awareness of the number of opportunities there are for performers as players of musical instruments or singers; or the support team as songwriters, recording engineers, and producers.

Music and Kids will be looking for the flowers in the field -- the students that are already standing out with their natural musical ability that may or may not be getting the ongoing education to develop their talent. Music and Kids will then help guide the students and parents with information and assist with scholarship funding when funds are available.

Music and Kids will join with communities to develop ongoing programs and events to continue the awareness for the need for music, music education, and the love a community can build through music.

The Almond Blossom Festival and the Jr. Star Search competition are free and open to the public, so Music and Kids relies on corporate and other community partners to provide volunteers to help defray costs and to contribute funding to the Music and Kids on-going one-on-one music program. Jr. Star Search sponsors will receive favorable publicity for supporting this novel event. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Music and Kids at (661) 435-3143 or email cmurphy@musicandkids.org. We have a variety of packages and will gladly customize a sponsorship package to accommodate your needs and/or budget.
