K-12 & Community Programs

It's always good that students get the opportunity to hear such excellent levels of musicianship. Especially as we live in a rural community and many would never attend a jazz even such as this. It's also good that they see that people play jazz and improvise in music for a living!

As the Distance Learning Coordinator for Oswego County [NY], I have done a lot of video conferences. This video conference was very engaging, educational and interesting for both the students and the adults in the room. My students learned a great deal about China through the language and music and were blogging about their experience after they left!

Abby told me the MSM lessons have been the coolest thing she has done in High School. We live in a rural Nebraska and for her to receive professional instruction like this, in our own school, is wonderful. Every school has an Abby that could benefit from this opportunity.

Excellent programme, thank you very much. It was great to get the input of specialists in the area. I would not personally have been able to deliver this kind of programme... It was great to have songs included from [popular music] since some pupils in my class are huge fans!

Beattock Primary School (Scotland)

The presenter had many good ideas, and the student responded well to those ideas. Some even wanted to recap the whole even at the next class meeting to share with others. Students took notes in the music while [the teaching artist] presented. This was nice to see! Needless to say, any info coming from such a well-respected institution as MSM had a certain "Wow factor" with my students :) Thank you so very much for all your efforts.
