MSU Community Music School

Michigan State University’s Community Music School came to life in 1993 as an outreach component of MSU’s College of Music. The goal of the program was to improve lives through music by making it more accessible to the Greater Lansing Community. They wanted to create a place where they could do outreach through music, says Rhonda Buckley, associate dean for outreach and engagement. They wanted to make music and music therapy accessible to people regardless of age, income or ability.
