Project Rhythm helps me get out of my shell… it’s like wow, I can do this? I can play the piano, I can write songs. It gives me confidence. It’s a really great experience.
~ Tamika, Project Rhythm Student
I learned if someone else isn’t good at something, to never criticize, instead give them positive feedback. I learned a lot about how to make songs, and how how to setup equipment and how to express myself through music.
~ Rayshaun (aka Happy Feet), Project Rhythm Student
Working with Project Rhythm for the past two years has been an amazing experience for my students. In addition to empowering them and increasing their self-confidence, they had an opportunity to problem solve and work with students other than their friends. They have learned so much about writing and performing; all the while having a positive and fun learning experience.
~ Diane Rigo, English Teacher, Brooklyn School for Career Development
This is a great program, it gives the kids the opportunity to be creative and helps their collaboration skills. Making something out of nothing is important for them. The kids get excited about the technology, making the music and performing it. Some kids who want to do the engineering, some who want to sing, everyone has an important role. There are a lot of kids who want to be in the program.
