L.A. INNER-CITY MUSIC PROGRAM INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN QUINCY JONES’ MUSIQ CONSORTIUM

Charyn Harris of Project MuszEd has been invited to represent A Place Called Home (APCH) in The Quincy Jones Musiq Consortium on Wednesday, April 29, 2009 in New York City. Through Project MuszEd, Ms. Harris oversees activities of the APCH music department, a learning site for the The Berklee City Music Network. The Quincy Jones Musiq Consortium is uniting leaders in music education, the music industry, corporations, foundations and philanthropists to share resources, networks, ideas and their passion to make music education an ongoing part of the lives of children in the U.S.

Berklee’s support of APCH has benefited hundreds of youth by providing free cutting-edge learning materials via the PULSE (Pre-University Learning Experience) website. PULSE provides an engaging interactive learning experience for the students. 15 students from APCH have attended Berklee’s summer program on scholarship while 3 students have been accepted fulltime; 2 with full scholarships to the prestigious institution. Under the direction of Ms.Harris, the program has been recognized by the City of Los Angeles and is lauded as one of the most comprehensive free music programs in Los Angeles in bringing cultural enrichment and diversity to the inner city community. Ms. Harris credits her educational experience at Berklee with preparing her to successfully meet the demands of professional and personal pursuits. “Attending Berklee gave me a competitive advantage. I’m excited to be able to pass this knowledge to my students. The venture with APCH, especially with the support of Berklee, is vital since it makes such a measurable difference in the lives of youth who may not otherwise have a positive or productive outlet of focus and expression .”

Project MuszEd is a nonprofit organization providing resources in music education and consultation to organizations and individuals. PM facilitates exciting opportunities that foster personal and academic growth for students who otherwise would not have access.
