MIC Class
MIC Class

Youth on Record has officially launched our Musicians in Community training.

This program will train musicians statewide to serve as guest and teaching artists in schools and youth facilities throughout Colorado. Musicians will be prepared to lead and instruct in classrooms and community settings, including libraries, community organizations, and facilities for sensitive populations. 

The training will prepare Colorado musicians to:

  • Develop a setlist of personal experiences and strategic song selection
  • Tailor content for different age groups
  • Coordinate with teachers on how to enrich existing curricula
  • Set their rates for appearances and enrichment offerings

This training is designed and facilitated by our Director of Special Programs, Stephen Brackett


"I feel prepared to present a workshop based on this training"

"I feel equipped with the tools necessary to design a successful workshop"

"There was space for me to share my experience and expertise"

"Training was relevant to my needs"

"I enjoyed my experience in MIC Class"

"Content was well organized"
