To empower the global community by utilizing music to strengthen relationships between artists, educators, parents, youth, and institutions
About CODA Program
Community! Outreach! Development! Achievement! More than a music lesson, CODA Program offered a holistic approach to music education. Students received a well-rounded experience in every workshop, class, and lesson led by artist educators whose approach is to share music with the world. CODA Program offered private music instruction, workshops, after-school and summer camp programming, classroom education, custom workshops and learning tools. Serving every educational level from kindergarten to college and beyond, CODA Program effectively provided opportunities for communities to learn and enjoy music.
CODA Program is the result of a need. During the Summer of 2004, while taking a break from an artist production project, Ali Richardson and Nathan Lee Jones discussed their desire to help children within the community gain increased access to quality music educational experiences. Ali, being a highly-skilled educator and musician, was already offering his services to a variety of clients. However, the need was greater than he alone could fulfill. Teaming up, the CODA Program was born.
