Music In Schools Today: Latin American Music Program (LAMP)

at Roosevelt Middle School

Latin American Music Program (LAMP) is a 90-minute after-school class provided twice per week and tailored to the 6th-8th grade students who speak Spanish or Mam at home.  During the school day, most of these students are required to be in ESL classes when other students are receiving arts education.  LAMP students will learn about and play music celebrating Central and South American traditions, including Mariachi, Banda, and Son Jarocho.   Instruments taught will include guitar, violin, trumpet, percussion, guitaronne, and others. Classes will culminate with students recording a performance for their community that will be live-streamed.
