About The Ken Ford Foundation
The Ken Ford Foundation focuses on enhancing academic excellence through music appreciation. Our philosophy is, musicians achieve higher grade point averages (GPA) and test scores than non-musicians in the same school. Exposure and opportunity to study music uniquely enhances higher brain functions required for reading, mathematics, chess, science, and engineering. Therefore, The Ken Ford Foundation's (KFF) mission is to encourage generations of youth ages 5-18 to embrace their unique talents through an appreciation of music and to get school systems to recognize ‘music as a sport’ which most recently occurred in DeKalb County, a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
