WHAT DOES IT SUPPORT?
All year long, Common Chord provides a variety of educational and enrichment programs to area youth designed to provide access to musical experiences and build positive relationships.
InTune Music Mentorship program - provided to students at Project Renewal in Davenport, the MLK Center in Rock Island, and Boys & Girls Club in Moline and also now in Davenport. InTune employs professional musician mentors to share a love of music with the kids, build healthy mentoring relationships, develop stronger support networks for at-risk youth, and show positive paths forward in life.
Jerry Brown's Acoustic Music Club - a music enrichment program for youth and adults of all abilities that provides a fun musical experience. Provided in partnership with the Blackhawk Area Special Education Center, ARC of the Quad Cities, the Handicapped Development Center, and Empower House.
RiverCurrents - our flagship school program that teaches the history and evolution of American music along the Mississippi River. All Davenport 5th graders participate in this program, in addition to many other schools throughout the region.
Let’s Band Together - instrument loan program, which refurbishes donated instruments and loans them for free to students interested in exploring music, ensuring that finances are not a barrier to any child.
