Summer Programs

The MusicianShip offers a multi-disciplinary summer program at two sites—one for high school students and one for elementary and middle school students.

Depending on the site, we offer marching band, drumline, choir, dance, music business, music media, DJing, and music production programs, all leading to an end-of-summer showcase for students’ families and community members.

High School Program

The MusicianShip’s 2019 High School Summer Program was held at Columbia Heights Education Campus. Students between 7th and 12th grade had the opportunity to participate in one of our performing arts ensembles – Choir, Dance, Drumline or Marching Band. Some students joining this program are participants in the Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program. These students are eligible to participate in our performance ensembles, as well as our Music Media or Music Business tracks.

Elementary/Middle School Program

The MusicianShip’s 2019 Junior Summer Program was held at KIPP DC’s Web Campus. This program will boasted a choir, drumline, and band program. Students must be in grades K – 8 and at least 6 years of age to participate.
