Music in the Schools

Each year, the Mackinac Arts Council provides a grant for a program called Music in the Schools Program at Mackinac Island Public School. This is very important to the vision of M.A.C and seeing such a positive comment from a student in the local newspaper warms our hearts. 

From the Mackinac Island Town Crier, "Collin Armstrong, a junior at Mackinac Island Public School, says music class definitely has broadened the horizon for the 10 students in grades eight through 12 who are taking the class as an elective. Without Heather May’s guidance, he noted, he would have missed out on the joy of being able to play the songs of his favorite artists and the fun of playing the guitar." This type of  direct recognition makes us know we are on the right path and it is why we do what we do.
