Your gift builds the pathway for student success
Support the MusiCreation Station
Milwaukee children need music, and the MusiCreation Station initiative is giving communities a chance to express themselves this summer by bringing them together for a mobile music creating experience in their own neighborhoods.
WCM is outfitting a traveling van with all the technology and equipment needed for digital music making, along with partnering with community artists, to open opportunities for children who are looking for the chance to make music in new and innovated ways.
The goal is to bring these students to WCM to further craft their talents. Older children may have aged out of music programs at their schools, but the MusiCreation station will help them reconnect and reengage their passion for music. After bringing music to multiple Milwaukee neighborhoods, a culminating soundtrack of our city will be compiled, full of the music created by the talented young people touched by this project.
Your donation will directly impact these students and provide a pathway to music education with needed scholarship support to study at WCM.

Music Changes Lives
“Music changes lives.” A phrase that certainly comes to mind when you think of Javon, who prior to WCM programs at his school, had little interest in music. Now, thanks to generous donors who allowed him to move into one-on-one lessons with WCM teaching artist Mitch Shiner, he’s a thriving young musician.
Blind since birth, Javon experiences the world through sound and touch. His fascination with how instruments produce sound continues to grow. He’s even had the chance to participate in his school’s drumline and make new friends through his new-found passion for music.
