The goal of Project 440’s programs is to equip musicians with the tools they need to be successful, engaging, and relevant pillars of their community. Project 440 believes musicians must actively engage youth, create innovative ways to inspire every facet of our communities, and continually explore ways to relate all aspects of “contemporary” music and art to our own expression.
Project 440 is designed to encourage, educate and empower communities through the unifying power of music. Focused on service, our organization seeks to establish music as a central tool for education, leadership, and community building. The music industry is at a crossroads.
Project 440 trains young musicians to serve their communities through classical music. We provide industry-specific mentoring and training programs for young musicians that equip them with the tools they need to become successful, engaging, and compassionate artists.
We believe that music is transformative. Music connects us because it is both powerful and universal. Project 440 uses music as a tool to educate, encourage, and empower young people. We believe that classical musicians have a uniqueopportunity and responsibility to inspire the next generation of music lovers, and therefore must actively engage with underserved youth, explore non-traditional performance opportunities, and create interactive ways to inspire diverse communities.
Project 440’s innovative pedagogy combines workshops and seminars to create a customized training program for musicians, culminating in interactive performances and residencies throughout Philadelphia. We believe that the key to using classical music as a community-building tool is to ignite an early appreciation for community engagement within young musicians and give them the tools they need to become leaders and innovators in the creative economy of Philadelphia.
