BROOKLYN, NY - Founded in 2004 we are the Brooklyn Music & Leadership Institute (BMLI), a program that offers students the chance to participate in various instrumental music ensembles. We are a tool that schools can use to increase student participation in arts based activities. We specialize in beginning, intermediate, and advanced level instrumental music courses. BMLI band staff has a 18-year history of providing high-quality instrumental music instruction services to youth populations nationwide.

BMLI has created a revolutionary approach to inner-city music by creating competitive marching band programs for students residing in underserved neighborhoods, nationwide. BMLI music programs have received various 1st place and grand champion awards and recognition in the 4A Classification of High-Stepping Marching Bands nationally. In addition to music based instruction BMLI offers student leadership courses, which teach students how to plan for college, & set and attain goals for life.

Our history as an education consultant and vendor is noteworthy. BMLI has lead students in field/parade competition, concerts, special appearances and even movie shoots. The quality of our instruction, our unique approach and pedagogy; as well our track record for success solidify our status as a sole provider of high quality instrumental music services from New York to Texas, Mississippi and California.

BMLI is committed to the reduction of juvenile delinquency through operational efficiencies in the performing arts. BMLI will provide a safe haven where students can thrive in an exciting atmosphere. Through our collaborative activity, we will display the talents of youth to their parents, friends, and to the community. We will motivate youth to have regular attendance in school, teach self-discipline, and provide students with the tools they will need to organize for academic success.

From organizing binders, to homework completion strategies for students enrolled in the Arts, and study guides developed over the lifetime of our program to ensure that graduation rates are exceeded in the first year of implementation. BMLI is a new school model, which engages the entire school community in concentrating school pride and focusing academic success with the reward of performance from the very best of our music ensembles.
