AADL's Library Songsters Program Highlighted

Music EducatorMusic Educator For more than a decade, AADL's Library Songsters Program has brought area folk and blues musicians into classrooms though a partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools. The program teaches students, with the guidance of a professional musician, how to compose original songs, based on a unit of history or a related subject that students are studying in the classroom.

The just-published Fall 2013 issue of Michigan Music Educator highlights AADL's unique program, which has meant so much to hundreds of area youth.


My daughter was in a program with local musician Joe Reilly at Lawton Elementary last year. It was a very cool experience. Thanks to the library for supporting this program!

Congrats to Ira Lax and the Library Songsters program for serving as a model of excellence in education!
