The Bahama Village Music Program, a tax-exempt 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, was launched in 1999 with the mission of bringing free musical education and instruction to children aged 6 and up in the Key West community. BVMP is more than just an educational institution, the program creates a great sense of community spirit and pride, fosters important mentor relationships between local teenage musicians and their students, encourages parent participation, and enhances student’s self-esteem. Our target community, Bahama Village, is rich in cultural history and community involvement, inspiring our students to become not only better musicians, but also better human beings. Bahama Village Music Program’s mission is to provide quality music education to children who would otherwise not have access to private music instruction.
Larry serves as Vice President of BVMP’s Board of Directors and is an active instructor and mentor for this amazing community of young musicians. He is also a parent of former BVMP music students!
