Music Workshop Instrument Series -Primary Music Ed



Due to extreme budget cuts, music is disappearing from our primary education system. In response to the need, Music Workshop teaches students music history, appreciation, and how to use music to be successful in life. We are an innovative turnkey music program that is offered for free to public elementary schools and last year we brought our program to 20 schools in OR and WA, educating nearly 15,000 students. For the upcoming 2014-2015 school year, we are accepting applications for 50 schools!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

It is extremely difficult to expose our elementary school aged children to music when it is being cut year after year from our public school system. There is ample evidence that music helps students develop the attitudes, characteristics, and intellectual skills required to participate effectively in our global society. Music teaches self-discipline, reinforces self-esteem, fosters thinking, communication and creativity.

How will this project solve this problem?

Music Workshop is an innovative, turnkey and supplemental music education program that is offered free of charge to all public elementary schools. The program will be presented to all students attending a participating school. Music Workshop will prove to be an effective way to teach students the history of music and music appreciation, and it will most importantly give students an understanding on how to use music in their lives to be successful.

Potential Long Term Impact

Music Workshop's program can be quickly implemented in any public elementary school with a fully-downloadable program. Therefore, our program will be able to expand into many schools affecting many students in a small time frame. We are currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year for the first 50 schools. We will bring the Genre series for first-year participating schools and the Instrument series for the second-year schools with training sessions taking place in September.
