Learning with Music

Learning with Music is an innovative, evidence-based music integration program developed to promote school readiness and self-regulation skills for young children.

Beginning in 2004 and resulting in the recent publishing of a research study confirming its effectiveness, this unique program trains early childhood educators to integrate music throughout their classes daily activities. As children learn to use music to help regulate their behavior and emotions, music becomes a meaningful part of the classroom’s culture.


Project Amplify for K-12 Music Education

Project Amplify is a grant-funded, music education initiative offered to Minnesota K-12 music classrooms at no charge to the school. The program focuses on strengthening learning opportunities for K-12 Minnesota music students from historically marginalized backgrounds. This effort provides transformational programming that nurtures creativity, honors students’ backgrounds, and provides tools and resources to support K-12 educators.
