SECTIONS: Music for Sustainable Community Development Music for Mental and Physical Health Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRY: United States of America PROJECT: TRANSFORMING LIVES AND COMMUNITIES THROUGH MUSIC: THE CENTER FOR MUSIC NATIONAL SERVICE DESCRIPTION: The Center for Music National Service (MNS) is a nonprofit organization that supports music as a strategy for public good. Through direct programs and advocacy, MNS promotes music as an intervention to improve student success, soothe the sick, and strengthen communities of all kinds. MusicianCorps, MNS‘s flagship program, trains and places musicians to serve full-time as teachers and mentors in low-performing public schools, youth centers, and other high-need community settings. MusicianCorps uses music to reengage youth in their academic and civic lives, and provide them the skills critical to success in the 21st century. MusicianCorps has the following key goals (see the Research and Evaluation section of this report for additional information): Keeping students in school, Building 21st century workforce skills, Making music accessible and strengthening community. MusicianCorps Mentors are skilled musicians who have demonstrated a commitment to making a positive impact in their community. Mentors receive a living stipend, health care and professional development in exchange for a year-long service term. MC Mentors provide 4 days per week of music instruction and engagement at 1-2 high-need service sites. Weekly ―5th days‖ are dedicated to community service and outreach, corps-based reflection and leadership development. The MusicianCorps curriculum has four main components: Music Instruction: Project-based instruction focused in composition, improvisation and performance Arts Integration: Incorporating music into core subjects such as math, literacy, and technology to heighten students‘ perception and understanding Service Learning: Youth apply and strengthen skills learned in the classroom through quarterly engagement in Music Service Days, performances and community events Consistent Mentorship: Young adult MusicianCorps Mentors serve as reliable and relatable role models for youth CURRENT STATUS: MNS is funded by both private and public sources. The organization‘s current priority is multistate expansion of its flagship program, MusicianCorps. As a participant at Clinton Global Initiative (CGI America) 2011, MNS made a commitment to expand MusicianCorps to 3-5 cities by Fall 2012. Currently supported in part by an AmeriCorps planning grant, MNS is a candidate for AmeriCorps National Direct funding through the Corporation for National and Community Service. MNS is also piloting a new MusicianCorps Health & Wellness pilot initiative that supports in the physical, mental, and emotional recovery of patients, veterans, and other populations. Serving in 35
