Our Story

Mission and Vision

Kids in a New Groove provides Texas youth in foster care with a committed one-on-one mentoring relationship through weekly private music instruction, giving students the ability to build concrete strategies for life-long success.

Kids in a New Groove offers several different types of lessons based on the child’s chosen area at no cost to the child or foster family. Our students also perform in an annual recital and have the opportunity to make live recordings in a professional recording studio. We are currently providing lessons to children in Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Houston. Please contact us for info about lessons in your area.

If you are interested in submitting a child for the program, please read our FAQ for further information.
