100 children learning and growing in big and small ways, through music.
For a second year, we are reaching an additional 100 plus children through free and low cost after-school music instruction thanks to the support of donors and grantors.
Music Matters includes partner based, off-site instruction and financial aid for mostly-onsite tuition programs
Classes this year include Ukulele, Songwriting, Drumming, and Arts & Crafts at Elm Park Community School and Ukulele at Black Excellence Academy (BEA). Four teachers are at Elm Park three days a week; one teacher plus assistant are visiting BEA this spring.
Four Clark University students joined us this year as Teachers/Teaching Assistants.
