ME’s believes that through music, youth can be empowered to discover and embrace their individuality and to develop a sense of self-confidence and worth.

The program is designed in three parts:

  • Spring: Music basics to all 7th and 8th grade students.
  • Summer: Instrumentation & vocal training for students displaying most interest in music program. Students plan a community wide performance to share their talents.
  • Fall: Mini recording academy. Music engineers return to host school to record songs performed during summer concert.
