/  Ian Foster Jones (l.) says he founded Young Voices, Big Sounds because he loves music and working with kids.   /  Young Voices, Big Sounds, a music program created by Ian Foster Jones, works with kids in six schools across Brooklyn and Manhattan.    /  Young Voices, Big Sounds helps young people discover and express their love of singing, composing and   playing instruments.  Ian Foster Jones is getting in tune with his students.The 31-year-old teacher came to Brooklyn’s Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice three years ago and was wowed by its academic curriculum ― but found its music program fell flat.“It was shocking to start working in schools, and connecting with educators, and to realize how few and far between music opportunies are for young people in what is considered to be one of the meccas for music making,” he says.“How can I be in this city, and I can go out and see music of every possible variety, yet there is very little happening in the arts for these kids that I am working with every day?”Jones began giving extra music lessons after class to 10 students, and the fledgling ensemble performed in the school’s inauguration celebration honoring President Obama in 2009.Fast forward, and Jones’ solo session has swelled into Young Voices, Big Sounds, which today serves 300 kids through eight workshops at six schools in  Youth Blackhawks Jersey Brooklyn and Manhattan.Children from pre-kindergarten to teens in 12th grade learn to express themselves through singing and dancing, musical composition and mastering instruments from the steel drum to the bass guitar.They have opened for A-list acts including Common and Mos Def at the annual Fort Greene Festival the past two summers, and Jones also raised money through Kickstarter.com to rent Long Island University’s Kumble Theater for a showcase in June. There, kids from all six schools came together to flaunt their newfound skills.“It was a really powerful moment,” Jones says. “I will never forget being backstage and seeing the kids   after the show. They had this really great energy, and they validated the vision I have had for a long time: That we can use music as a vehicle to bring young people together and showcase their talents.”Of course, for the show to go on, Young Voices, Big Sounds needs cash ― a commodity that is increasingly rare for arts and music programs across the city.Systemwide budget cuts caused New York City public schools to ax almost $14 million from their arts programs  Chicago Black Hawks Jersey in 2010, which meant fewer teachers, supplies  Toddler Giants Jersey and instruments.Jones argues the benefits of arts education are as important as core subjects like math and science for producing well-rounded, educated adults.“I don’t see this as taking away from math and science and English,” says Jones.“Music education can be a trigger for better engagement and higher performance in the other aspects of a young student’s life,” he explains.  Eagles New Jerseys “I see this as building upon what we do in the core academic subjects.”
