Just wanted to share and say what a wonderful experience I had working with MUST. The staff was incredibly attentive to our After School Program's needs, and selected a music teacher that was a wonderful match for our community.

MUST programs, designed for tough times, are extremely cost-effective, as we constantly weight cost-of-service against impact. We emphasize teacher training as well as providing teaching artists, and we avoid “break-out” classes, which can be more easily cut than programs that are integrated into the school curriculum.

We teach teachers how to integrate music into all subjects through basic musical concepts like rhythm and melody, and how to use simple rhythm instruments. Then we help them to make the connections between music and other curricula. For instance, we teach children songs about ecology, to observe in a garden setting and to set their observations to music.
