WMC Program elements:
- provides piano at B&GC
- On-site live performances (WMC members; other community ensembles) available to all ages.

- Provide a playlist for B&GC art room

- 5th grade instrumentalists: Practice coaching at Walker Elementary School on Wednesdays 3:30—4:30 p.m. The Practice Coaches will help with note reading, counting, encourage students to ask questions, and motivation to practice. Open to any Walker students by invitation of the band/orchestra directors.
