By Students, For Students
Project Prelude is a non-profit, student-run music education organization. We teach free music lessons to economically disadvantaged youth in the Portland area. Our organization is unique because we are all high school musicians who are passionate about expanding accessibility to music education.
We aim to make music more accessible for all students, increase awareness about the importance of music education, and support music programs at schools. We do this by teaching free group and private lessons to elementary school students in the Portland area.
We plan to scale the program to other schools in the Beaverton School District with similar demographics and to run outreach events around the area. Our goal is to involve more musicians that are around our age--from our youth orchestras and communities--to join our organization and volunteer to teach or even lead programs at schools in their area.
For the 2017-18 school year, we will be expanding our group lesson program to McKinley Elementary School and Raleigh Hills K-8 School. We will also be developing our private lesson program to involve more teachers and students.
