Students were invited to join based on their leadership in attendance, homework and behavior. M.U.S.I.C Inc. and KIPP worked together to monitor the M.U.S.I.C. Inc. Scholars to ensure they continue to demonstrate leadership skills and make positive choices towards a strong school culture.
STRING WIZARDS is a volunteer service within each music organization. While STRING WIZARDS are in more than one school, the concept is to help these front line music educators do their job. In ancient times, did the music happen because of the campfire, or did the campfire happen because of the music and dancing? Either way Music has been proven. Violin making and repair has all the same artistry and the same personal impact. You can't have good music without good instruments, and we teach the kids to do both.
