InAccord executive board members have had the opportunity to tour many Detroit Public and Charter Schools where young people expressed if there were music classes available they would be interested and participate. In essence…that’s “Reach” which would target and support the elementary and middle school students that wouldn’t otherwise have exposure to the arts. At the age where creativity is peak, students redirect their energy in music studies. This educational component is designed to support academic studies in school by encouraging study habits, reading, math, listening skills, focus, working within groups, and to be a feeder program for High School and beyond.
