Making Music in Communities

Through experiential learning, students learn how to work collaboratively, within and across organizations, to develop and produce musical projects. Over the course of the semester, students will build small-group collaborative organizations and develop, fund, and produce a musical project that meaningfully engages a community (broadly defined) outside the School of Music. Alongside their projects, students will deepen their understanding of inter-related equity, labor, policy, and advocacy matters in the arts through discussion and written responses, culminating in a final assignment in which students reflectively and creatively articulate their vision for the field of music and their role in relation to it.
