The Intonation Music Workshop
The Intonation Music Workshop empowers children to become rock stars on every stage in life through innovative music education. Using donated instruments and a unique pop-band curriculum, our after-school and summer music program provides kids age 6-17 in Chicago’s underserved communities with access to instruction and performance opportunities in a safe and positive environment, sparking for many a life-changing sense of accomplishment and belonging. Our students learn to express themselves musically, at the same time developing essential life skills such as cooperation, practice, risk-taking, and setting and meeting goals. IMW Instructors work closely with the students as they explore each aspect of the pop band format–drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and vocals–before choosing their niche and forming a band with fellow students. The bands are then mentored through weeks of preparation for a community performance.
IMW partners with social service agencies, Chicago Park District locations, Charter Schools, and other organizations in the realization of its mission.
Intonation Music Workshop will be joining us this Thursday, Sep 27 at 7pm.
