Music in Schools


for VES & CCS Schools Only

This “camp” can serve 2 schools in the South region, particularly Champ Cooper and Martha Vinyard Schools: 1) CCS has been identified as UNDERSERVED as it has had no music program within the last decade; 2) Both CCS and MVES (incoming students from DCR) will have gone through the initial steps of recruitment. These students should be equipped with Beginning Band Instruments. NO performance at conclusion. Rather, an “informance” to share/show/tell newly acquired knowledge and connection to wind band music (Teach A Parent to Play competency activity). Create an interactive dialog with potential stakeholders (students, parents, school administration, community). Students will enter 2023-2024 with functional band skills in August.
