Music Here! Is a new program that extends WMC's outreach to students in lesser served areas in our community by developing an afterschool music program in partnership with the Walker Upper Elementary School and the Boys & Girls Club of Central Virginia (B&GC), beginning with their Cherry Avenue location.
WMC Program elements:
- provides piano at B&GC.
- On-site live performances (WMC members; other community ensembles) available to all ages.
- MusicLearningCommunity.com accounts for 2nd-4th graders (through B&GC Computer Lab program)
- Provide a music playlist for B&GC.
- Rewards program.
- 5th grade instrumentalists: Practice coaching at Walker Elementary School on Wednesdays. The Practice Coaches will help with note reading and counting, as well as encourage students to ask questions and motivate them to practice. Open to any Walker students by invitation of the band/orchestra directors. In addition, daytime tutors will be available on select dates and times throughout the year to work with students during their music class time.
