2021 In Review

Updated: Feb 18

At Boston Music Project, we aim to bring our community together through music education. Over the past year, we have continued to innovatively explore the art of music. See what we’ve achieved by checking out this recap of our collective successes!

As we reflect on the year’s challenges and opportunities, we also asked BMP students to share how music and BMP’s music education programming has impacted them. See what they have to say about BMP's music programs, here.

Social-Emotional Learning through Music @ BMP

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is one of the key components of the Boston Music Project Curriculum. Read about how our Rimsky Orchestra has implemented SEL practices in the classroom.

Our Executive Director, Christopher Schroeder, co-authored an article for the National Association for Music Education with Dr. Scott Edgar, and Dr. Michael P. Fleischmann. The article expounds on the importance of weaving SEL into music education to promote confidence, collaboration, and community-building.
