DoSo Music was founded in 2010 by David Mills who left an administrative position at Yale in order to concentrate on music education initiatives that can address a wide range of social issues. David has partnered with several schools and institutions that have the capacity for major impact. He works closely with many talented music teachers, and he is assembling a Senior Team of collaborators.
Some of the programs include:
The DoSo Orchestra is designed to be a backdrop for social gatherings and to reunite live music with social dancing. It provides life-long music making opportunities for those who have studied orchestra instruments. To read about the motivation to create the DoSo Orchestra as a dance band click here.
DoSo Dance is a form of social dancing that provides young people an opportunity to communicate through touch in an appropriate way.
DoSo Elementary is a program for children ages 7 – 11 and is designed to inspire them to learn an instrument. It has been scientifically documented that learning to play an instrument before the age of 14 provides life-long cognitive advantages.
