Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
The Power of Music (POM) was started by Joseph Kayne in the 9th grade in the spring of 2020 to enrich the lives of people who are isolated or detached from the broader community by providing them the joy and connectivity of in-person music presented by high school students. Any communication or interaction with people experiencing loneliness is vitally important to their well-being, but live music is special. Studies prove what we know intuitively – music brings increased happiness to people, and science has also shown that music has a positive physical effect on our bodies and our mental health. “Where words fail, music speaks” is POM’s driving principle.
Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? *
Yes, Grades 9 – 12
List possible volunteer opportunities -or- a link to where they can be found on the web.
The Power of Music desires students who want to use music to help others. The vision of POM is for high schools nationwide to start Power of Music chapters or classes, so the connectivity and wellness we provide through live music is available everywhere. Isolationism is at crisis levels, and high school students can use music to be part of the solution.
