We provide a world-acclaimed music and performing arts curriculum that develops a boy’s potential for excellence, builds character, embraces cultural diversity and provides unparalleled opportunities for performance, travel, leadership and community outreach.
Research proves music education dramatically increases brain development and improves students’ academic performance. Frances Reuscher, Ph.D., Univ. of Wisconsin, states, “During musical performance, children must constantly turn their thoughts into actions. Thought structures continually have to be updated and adjusted. The combination of constant vigilance and forethought coupled with ever-changing physical responses is an educational experience of unique value.” According to Profiles of SAT and Achievement Tests Taken, “There is a direct correlation between improved SAT scores and the length of time spent studying the arts.” “Students with coursework/experience in music performance scored 52 points higher on the verbal portion of the SAT and 36 points higher on the math portion of the SAT than students with no coursework or experience in the arts for a combined total of 88 points higher.” An Evaluation of Participants Study (funded by grants from Arts Orange County and the Fieldstone Foundation) was undertaken to determine: 1) The overall impact of our program from the viewpoint of participants, parents and alumni; 2) Our program’s effectiveness in overall growth in artistic and musical skills; 3) Our impact on self worth, self-confidence, leadership and goal-directed behaviors in students. The Study concludes: “The All-American Boys Chorus is one of the nation's premier musical institutions, and it’s work serves as a reminder that the arts are one of the most significant forces in our lives not only for the sheer pleasure and beauty that they bring, but also as a powerful means for shaping and creating lives of meaning and purpose. In sum, the Chorus benefits EACH boy in its program through its rich music education, social diversity, leadership training and mentoring, development of life skills and incredible travel opportunities.”
