of the Music Lab at Jefferson Center.
By offering music education through
experiences such as performance bands,
production and songwriting classes,
workshops and lessons, the program
helps prepare students for future careers
in the music industry.
"Students have access to music
education in a completely different,
immersive way. They learn how to write
songs, record them and work together to
achieve their goals," according to Jordan

Coordinator. "They create meaningful
relationships with other students with
similar interests. They learn that hard
work leads to rewarding experiences."
The Music Lab features a recording
studio and workspace for students to
work on their own music projects.
Masterclasses with artists who perform
at the Jefferson Center inspire students
to find their voices and create their own
songs and music.
