School of Music
A school designed for those
who want to learn to play music.
The Kolaiah School
of Music was founded to bring music to the reach of
anyone who wants to learn. Kolaiah Productions, Inc.
is an agency that believes that everyone in our community
should be able to learn to sing or play an instrument,
or for that matter act, paint, sculpt, etc. The musical
arts are expressions that relate to anyone and everyone.
It has been said that music is the language of the
As a faith-based nonprofit, Kolaiah
Productions offers the School of Worship which been
developed specifically for those who want to develop
and use their musical gifts to bring honor to the
Lord Jesus Christ and to spread the Good News to the
As a faith-based nonprofit, Kolaiah
Productions has set up the School of Music to be accessed
by anyone regardless of their faith to be able to
receive music education. Kolaiah Productions sees
music as a venue where people of all backgrounds can
dialog. In music expression, everyone can find their
voice. We all have something to say. Everyone has
a story to tell. Let’s build on those conversations
and learn from one another!
As an extension of the Kolaiah School
of Worship, the Kolaiah School of Music has a wider
outreach in that the School of Worship is mostly for
those who want to lead worship and/or be involved
in the music ministry of a church or outreach. The
School of Music is for anyone who wants to learn to
play a musical instrument or sing… or both.
As a whole, we believe that music
brings healing, unity, knowledge and much more. It
gives a sense of community where each one can find
a voice in which to be heard. We want to be that foundation
in the lives of children and families.
Kolaiah Productions offers training
to anyone and everyone who wants to learn to develop
their musical skills. In making this statement, Kolaiah
Productions also wants to offer these trainings to
anyone regardless of their economic status. We believe
that everyone who loves music should be able to develop
their skills and have access to such training. As
a nonprofit school, we are partnering with the community
to reach out to those who may not be able to afford
such education. We are looking to reach out to those
who are at-risk, impoverished and/or simply unable
to afford musical training.
Kolaiah Productions, Inc. believes
in a holistic approach when teaching music to children
and families. One can make the argument that a child
may have a difficult time learning if their stomach
is growling. Also, Kolaiah Productions does not want
to turn anyone away if they cannot afford tuition
for lessons. Therefore, Kolaiah Productions seeks
partners to help children and families have access
to quality music education as well as meeting basic
needs such as food, clothing, school supplies, etc.
Also, Kolaiah Productions sees the
School of Music as a program where family and community
needs can be met. Many schools have discovered that
by helping to meet the needs of the family, students
become better equipped to prepare for their futures.
Kolaiah School of Music also believes that while we
are teaching music to children and young people, there
often times are other needs that should be addressed.
Tutoring for school in mathematics, history, science,
etc. will be offered to those who are under-served,
at risk, etc. Kolaiah Productions will have a family
resource center where children and families can seek
help for food, clothing, parenting, education, etc.
In looking for partners, we welcome
individuals, businesses, foundations, etc. to work
with us. Though financial gifts work well to help
pay utilities, wages, etc., our desire is to expand
our in-kind donations as well. This applies to volunteer
work, donated supplies and much more. As a nonprofit
recognized by both the IRS and State of California,
all donations to Kolaiah Productions, Inc. are tax
We are looking for more partners who
might be able to help supply musical instruments,
volunteer service, office supplies, computer hardware
and software, recording equipment, monies, in-kind
services, etc. to help us meet these needs. We also
believe that we have a responsibility to help meet
the needs of children and their families who become
part of the schools.
Though we are focusing on the musical
arts currently, we also are aware that other arts
are closely related and should also be made available
to children and adults who would like to learn and
hone their skills. Other arts such as dance, painting,
drawing, etc. are very closely related to the musical
arts and can also be used to further develop worship
Please let us know if you have someone,
children or adults, who would like to be able to learn
to play and/or sing and is not able to receive this
type of training. We will be glad to receive them
as students and help give them the training they would
like to receive. In regards to music, no child…
or adult… should be left behind!
