Making Music Matters (MMM) is committed to ensuring equity of access to quality Arts Education, specifically instrumental music instruction, to students in the Boston Public Schools. MMM welcomes all students. The MMM enrollment is deliberately inclusive and reflects the diverse student populations and various educational settings in each school. Through student performances, Making Music Matters works to engage whole school communities, create multi-school collaborations, promote communication and cooperation among administrators/headmasters, inspire teaching and learning, involve and connect parents/guardians and homes, and to link schools across the District to their neighborhoods and to the larger community.
Most important, Making Music Matters brings the gift of music to our students. For many of our children, MMM’s in-school instrumental program is the only opportunity they will have to learn to play a musical instrument. Learning to play an instrument can alter a student’s entire school and educational experience. MMM is pledged to provide a vibrant arts experience in our schools and to encourage a life-long love of music in all of our students.
