This is Your Life on Music: a musical collaboration program

We are going to start an afterschool program for local elementary school children that will combine music with what they are learning in their classes at school in a fun and educational way. They will do activities such as relating characters in their books to music, drawing what they see in the music, and learning basic acoustics about instruments, such as watching the strings in a piano vibrate and how those vibrations function. This small group of children will meet once or twice a week to create these connections, have fun, and grow within their educational environment.
