2 comprehensive 12-week music residency programs for MPS/Milwaukee Schools, have been created in response to: “Dearth of MPS music programs disproportionately affects low-income, African American students”. Providing music programs for MPS as a residency is a deliberate effort to continue community enrichment and support for Milwaukee’s youth.
Realize Your Dream “Music In Me” for elementary students grades 3-5, and “Music With My Friends” for middle school students will help to close the gap and connect with Milwaukee’s urban youth through dedicated, city-based, hands-on, performing arts residencies.
The residencies are an extension of the Realize Your Dream Workshops held each summer, collaborating with organizations such as My Next Generation and Boys and Girls Clubs. These are fun, interactive, performing arts workshops.
