Projects in the making:

Work with the Hillsboro School District on a variety of projects. Establish internships and scholarships for those interested in the arts.
Provide songwriting classes for students to write songs that pertain to the areas of math, science, language arts, or any subject, as a tool for learning.
Network with other local artists and music teachers. Refer those interested in music lessons to professional teachers in the area.
Develop an online curriculum and database for music lessons.
Develop curriculum around an “Oregon” theme that involves music as well as math, science, language arts, and other subjects. Put together a “program” utilizing local students’ work, and sharing this program with other communities in Oregon, and eventually throughout the United States.
