The Music Makers Program

In the fall of 2018, local producer and music industry professional, Drew Vandenberg, approached the Club with an idea that would allow Club members to explore their creative sides. Thanks to support for the Riverview Foundation, the Kirby Smart Foundation and other community members, the Music Makers program began in early 2019.

Club members interested in opportunities within the music and sound industry now have the opportunity to learn from leading professionals, visit studios & performance halls, and learn how to use industry standard audio and visual software. Students learn to combine the science of sound with the art of music in a 13 week STEM curriculum.

The Music Makers program is a part of the Workforce Development initiative. Workforce Development efforts help us ensure that our kids gain employability skills and explore their talents so that they enter the workforce ready to succeed.

If you or your organization would like to support the Music Makers program, reach out to Adriana@GreatFuturesAthens.com or call (706) 546 - 5910.
