In 2015, RAA and its community partners launched RAAMP: Riverside Arts Academy Music Project. The impetus for RAAMP is the current neurological evidence linking early music instruction to literacy.

RAAMP offers after school music instruction at four elementary schools in Riverside Unified School District and one elementary school in Alvord Unified School District. RAAMP also provides Saturday music instruction at the Cesar Chavez Community Center and California Baptist University.

Currently, all our music instruction has transitioned to an online platform in response to COVID-19 closures.
