MIC Music For Life Program


  • LISTEN to a great piece of music.
  • LEARN about the composer and the historical and cultural setting of the music.
  • EXPLORE the music further with a related visual art, movement, or dramatic activity.

Explore great music from around the world with instructors from Music Institute of Chicago. Engage in games, activities, and lessons that explore the people, places, and culture of music history. Music for Life gives children a creative and stimulating introduction to classical music, composers and the culture of the music's origin.  Each program involves interactive games, activities, and classical music listening. After children hear the piece of music (performed live), they explore the music through some combination of visual art, movement, and dramatic activity.
