For more than a decade the Madison Area Music Association has provided musical instruments as well as money to Madison area schools, independent music teachers, and community organizations to ensure children are able to make their music. In 2017, the MAMA decided to step up its efforts and make a bold move toward providing a dynamic music education program for middle and high school children. With the assistance of SOSONIC and the Rotary Club of Madison West, as well as other supporters, the MAMA is directly funding music lessons.
In November of 2017, the first session of music lessons was launched with Badger Rock Middle School and lasted approximately 5 months. This summer, students from Wright Middle School will take-up the second session of music lessons. The summer program will take place at the secure SOSONIC facility and be staffed with highly qualified instructors. Lessons will be provided on 2 days each week with each lesson period will last 2 hours, with 1 hour of music instruction and 1 hour of social and creative time.
There is a great amount of interest in this music program.
At least four additional schools have expressed interest in joining our program during the regular school year. As this program grows our expenses will also grow.
BIG REQUEST: These lessons are free to students. Most of these students would not be able to afford them even on a sliding scale. The MAMA is looking for your support. We need your help to pay instructors, to provide a snack for students (a meal during the school year), and to provide students with musical instruments.
