An important component of the PROJECT MUSIC students’ music education is exposure to excellence. PROJECT MUSIC is diligent to seek out guest artists to frequently visit the program in either a formal “concert/ master class” setting, or an informal performance seminar experience. Frequent visits from guest artists, volunteer musicians, and other musical activities such as field trips to local concert performances or reciprocal performances with their peers foster our students’ appreciation of the larger arts community, of which they are now proud members.
