Creative Music Project
This summer I am lucky to be traveling to Grand Cayman with a few of our student members from FIU and former member Kathy Kerstetter. We will be leading a music camp through the Creative Music Project! Please check out the website at www.creativemusicproject.org.
From the website:
The Creative Music Project, an organization which looks to promote student-based musical creativity by providing improvisation and composition activities accompanied by technology-based, multi-disciplinary methodology. We strive to become a force in music education by offering teachers the enhanced pedagogical skills to create well-rounded and creative music programs. Our mission is to provide communities with free music training workshops, both to music educators and students based on a balanced music curriculum. Training will provide teachers with an opportunity for professional development, which remains limited in some parts of the world. These workshops will help spark students’ and educators’ interest by introducing a curriculum based on music study through creating, alongside performing and responding to music. We will offer a rounded curriculum that focuses on composing and improvising, technology, analyzing and evaluating, and highlighting relationships between music and other disciplines. Our goal is to be able to carry out these workshops through different countries within the Caribbean and other communities that could benefit from such a program.
If you are looking for a charity – this is a great one to support!! ALL of the money goes directly to the students and teachers in the camp. Check out the website for details!
I’m so proud of our student members for being part of something so special!!!
