History

Began in 2005 as afaith based collaboration between two community leaders from Bethel A.M.E. Church, Salem Baptist Church and several University of Illinois programming units. Our name was “Mo’ Betta Music After School Academy”.

The objective was to offer jazz and popular music enrichment activities that encourage school age low-income students in upper elementary through high school and of all race, gender, and economic status to strive for excellence so they can participate and compete in their local school bands and choirs
