We recently talked about an opportunity to become a music mentor to nurture a youth’s talent. There is no question that music mentoring programs can play an important role in providing a continued learning experience that help keep our youth engaged in school and out of trouble. This is why we wanted to highlight another program that is available to youth in Greater Boston.
As a Berklee alumna, I wanted to share that Berklee City Music offers a series of age and skill-level appropriate music mentoring programs for middle school students and rising high school seniors living in Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Lawrence, Lynn, and Somerville.
The goal of the program is to make a positive impact in the students’ lives while providing them with skills and lessons that they can utilize throughout their lifetime. Not only do program participants have access to year-round instruction from talented faculty members and one-on-one mentoring, but they also have the ability to use the Berklee media center, library, and participate in a variety of music classes and workshops.
To be eligible for this music mentoring program, participants must express a deep interest in learning about music as well as have access to their own instruments. To learn more about how you can apply to this outstanding mentoring program, please contact City Music Boston at 617-747-2447 or visit the organization’s website.
In an effort to raise the awareness of Mentorology and the positive impact that a strong mentor can have on a youth’s life, we often use our Over My Shoulder Foundation blog to share mentoring success stories. Whether you have a question about mentoring or a success story, we want to hear from you! Please contact us to continue this conversation.
