The GRAMMY Museum in partnership with Global Wildlife Conservation, is proud to offer a multi-week ecology based songwriting program .
The program is malleable and modular: designed to fit a myriad of educational platforms from 8th-12th grade. The unique ecosystems of our nation's cities are the perfect vehicle for deepening a student's understanding of the world and their role in it. Cross curricular activities in this program seek to foster a series of experiential learning opportunities in the subjects of Environmental Science, English Language Arts, and Music. All coursework is attached to nationally recognized academic standards, and the culminating experience in this process is a completely original student generated song which illuminates the complexity and vibrancy of their city.
School groups are slated to receive the following items:

New Jersey Pilot:
In Spring of 2015, we completed two pilot programs in Jersey City, NJ. The following videos are a sample of the process and product created. A special thanks to John Flora, Robert O'Donnell, John Tarantula and the students of MS7 and PS28 for all of their hard work and dedication in the completion of these pilot programs. These songs are a true reflection of what this program is all about.
Washington D.C. Pilot:
Working with a group of students from Democracy Prep Congress Heights in Washington D.C. we completed a great song in collaboration with local artist Konshens and His State of Mind. The song "Cities Changing" was the product of a multi-week effort lead by Konshens and the teachers of Democracy Prep.
