MIC is dedicated to transforming lives through music education. We believe that enjoying and understanding music, and developing the skills to create and perform music enhance the quality of life and nourish the human spirit. More than entertainment or ambient sound, music is a vehicle for understanding, communication and self-improvement, as intrinsic to the human experience as language. Through joyful music learning, listening and playing, MIC students make themselves better and better able to contribute to the world.
