In addition to providing foundational skills for participation in the creative economy, Creative Career Pathway Programs open doors to self-expression, personal agency, and self-worth, – building a platform from which participants can make themselves heard and realize that their voice matters.
These programs develop creative self-expression through lyric writing, storytelling and digital music composition. The curriculum was developed to build Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills that music education is so uniquely effective at fostering. Students also receive workforce development skills in using professional-level production software and hardware.
