Border Beats, a new children’s music program will launch this spring at Providence Memorial Hospital with the intention of teaching music to young patients.

Young aspiring musicians will learn music by using the MIMA method:

The MIMA method was created by the Brooklyn-based non-profit, MIMA Music, a self styled proprietary curriculum that boosts creative confidence and encourages empathy. The method uses a curriculum of interactive musical games and an international repertoire of original songs to help kids unlock their creative potential, while empowering them to express themselves while also collaborating with others.

Now the MIMA Method will now be available in El Paso through the Creative Kids organization which has been has been used in 25 countries and on 5 continents.

Border Beats will serve as the music portion of Creative Kids which is a non-profit educational community-based art agency that reaches over 600 youth in the El Paso area.

The program will launch at Providence Memorial Hospital this spring with hopes of expanding to local schools by the fall.

If you are a passionate musician or music teacher then Creative Kids is looking for teaching artists like you.

The first training will be held on March 23-27th.

Those interested in becoming a teaching artist should be proficient in a musical instrument and passionate about teaching and creating relationships with individuals through music.
