Free Music Education for Kids

Image 1 of 6

People’s Music School is a free music school in Chicago. They are in the middle of transitioning from being founder run to being board run. We were asked to help take a pulse of the school from the teachers, students, and parents point of view through performing ethnographic interviews.

Findings / Opportunities
The client requested we provide them with an organized and slightly prioritized list of questions to use as prompts for their upcoming retreat. At the retreat there will be board members, committee members, staff, teachers, and parents gathered together to make plans for the future of the school. I will also be there to help facilitate the meeting, along with our professor, David McGaw, and three other students.

Retreat Workshop
The retreat was a success, resulting in some great ideas for the future of the school.
