The Music Education program at the Frost School of Music is involved in many community outreach programs. We provide after-school instruction at Ludlam Elementary School and for a New Horizons Band for adults. We also partner with Frost's Shalala MusicReach.

Ludlam Elementary School

The Ludlam Strings program was created in 2012 in an effort to revive string education in a school that had seen its orchestra eliminated due to budget cuts. The department offers musical training and performance opportunities for 4th and 5th grade students, as well as valuable field experience to our music education students at Frost.

New Horizons Band

Established in 2009, the New Horizons Band at the Frost School of Music is the only adult music program for beginning instrumentalists in the greater Miami area. Studies show that active participation can provide good mental and physical health as well as providing an unending source of joy.

Donna E. Shalala MusicReach

Established in 2008, the award-winning Donna E. Shalala MusicReach Program at the Phillip and Patricia Frost School of Music promotes the healthy growth of children and youth through the study and practice of music while nurturing the development of Frost student musicians to become advocates and ambassadors for music education for all children regardless of socio-economic standing. A top goal of MusicReach is to keep students in school and to go on to college upon graduation. 

Music Education Teaching Assistants provide program leadership and instruction for this integral program.
