Residency programs are curriculum based music programs that meet during the school day. These programs are extremely versatile, and are a great fit for schools that do not have a music teacher, or who want to supplement their existing music programs. These residencies play a vital role in bridging the gap that is so often found in arts programming in today’s schools. Working with a community arts partner like PBM allows for year long, standard- based programs, that can offer much more financial flexibility than a full time position. Our residency programs focus on general music, and are for all ages, K-8. Typically all classes in the school have music once per week, and participate in at least one recital.
