Its graduation season and we're so proud of our Doing Good graduates!

     

 

 

June 7th was a big event for the young musicians you see pictured above. They have officially graduated from our new flagship program, Doing Good!

Doing Good is a 30-week intense after-school program that teaches high school music students the basics of social entrepreneurship and community engagement. This program is broken up into two semesters. The first semester the students get to learn the “ins and outs” of social entrepreneurship, leadership, and community engagement. During the second semester, they get to put their skills to the test by creating and executing their projects.

Everyone is so talented in this program, and it was really nice to be in the same room as other musicians who cared as much as I do.

The Doing Good program has allowed me to see how far you can take music without actually playing your instrument and its also has helped me learned leadership skills that I wouldn’t have learned in school.

Project 440 gave me the opportunity to experience what teaching students would be like, and has helped me decide that I do want to go into music education.
