Kalamazoo Kids In Tune

Working hand in hand with Kalamazoo Pulbic Schools, KSO offers Kalamazoo Kids in Tune, an innovative after-school orchestra and youth development program at KPS Woods Lake Elementary and Milwood Magnet School. Students from early elementary through high school study instruments and chamber music, and participate in daily lessons and orchestra rehearsals. Selected middle and high school students return to the elementary program as KKIT Young Leaders twice per week to mentor younger children. After-school meals and busing make the program widely accessible.


Our mission: children will achieve their full potential through sustained, intense engagement in orchestral music.

KKIT gives students big opportunities!

  • to begin learning an instrument from a young age
  • to spend the after-school hours on fun, engaging and productive learning
  • access to continuous, daily music instruction for five years
  • to perform often in the school and across the Kalamazoo community
  • to leave elementary school prepared to participate as leaders in school and community ensembles
  • to develop a skill to share with pride in the family and community
