Project Music uses music to make an instrumental difference in the lives of Stamford’s youth, empowering them with fundamental life skills and a pathway to their full potential through access to our highly engaging, rigorous after-school music program which includes free instruments, music instruction, mentorship and opportunities to perform.
By providing convenient, free, high quality youth development/music education every day after school we address both need to access to enriching child care and high level enrichment in Stamford.
Playing a musical instrument opens doors to new worlds and experiences. Our programming provides opportunities for our students to expand not only musically, but personally. Through explorations in creativity, self-expression, team building and peer leadership our students cultivate and build fundamental life skills.
Our immersive after-school program inspires our students to create, compose and collaborate. Our students inspire us to provide them with the tools they need to live a meaningful, productive and creative life. We believe in the beauty of a world filled with music.
Our collective success results in social transformation, creation of inspiration, and access for those most in need. Development of creativity and innovation ultimately gives our students the vision of their own potential.
Schools with music programs have an estimated 90.2% graduation rate and 93.9% attendance rate compared to schools without music education, which average 72.9% graduation and 84.9% attendance.
Students who take music in middle school score significantly higher on algebra assignments in 9th grade than their non-music counterparts.
