Instrument Instruction
4 girls with guitars
From the Midori Website:

"In a 12 Notes residency, students in Grades 3-12  learn to play instruments or sing, both during and after school from September-June. Our Talented Teaching Artists provide high-quality instruction on woodwinds, brass, percussion, guitar, strings and voice. Each student receives an instrument to bring home for practice, a method book and a M&F Guidebook that outlines musical terms, skills and invites self-reflection.

  • Instills core life values such as joy, perseverance and collaboration
  • Engenders school pride and strengthens a sense of community
  • Develops schools’ capacity for sustainable music programs
  • Works together with school leadership to customize all program elements, as well as assess the impact and student progress
  • Ensures sequential instrument instruction

M&F offers opportunities for advanced students to further their musical acumen. Advanced students can participate in after-school bands, ensembles and choruses to elevate their musicianship and collaborative skills."
