Michigan State University's College of Music expanded its music education and music therapy offerings to children and youth in Detroit as part of a wider university effort to share faculty expertise and resources with the city's residents. CMS-Detroit programs are offered in response to the community's desire for enhanced music education and performance opportunities.
The programs are built on the knowledge that exposure to music dramatically enhances learning, life skills, cognitive development, social awareness, and problem solving—all skills that are transferable and necessary in these changing economic times.
