Volunteers from Dartmouth College founded their chapter in 2016 as “Musical Empowerment of the Upper Valley”. Serving Dothon Brook Elementary School (in Vermont), the Dartmouth chapter’s goal is to provide high quality music instruction while forging thoughtful, genuine, and caring relationships between students and mentors. Pre-COVID, leadership arranged social events for mentors to reflect, bond, and brainstorm about their experiences and support student-mentor relationships through funding field trips to local concerts (such as the college symphony orchestra)! This chapter celebrates students’ dedication with 2 recitals each year. Lessons take place year-round from September to June and new student enrollment is open in the fall and winter quarters.
Founded in 2016 by Matthew Goff ‘18 and Magdalena Raska ‘20, this chapter places special emphasis on the community for both teachers and students.
Please fill out this application and create your “Festi” account at least 1 week prior to the start of Fall or Winter term to be considered.
