UMBC Music Certificate Program Collaboration - BSO OrchKids
The UMBC post-baccalaureate Certificate in Music Entrepreneurship will empower musicians to enhance their career opportunities by learning business and entrepreneurial skills, and through practical experiences in entrepreneurial and educational ventures. Students will receive intensive classes in innovative music education methods and musical advocacy through collaborations between UMBC's Department of Music and the Baltimore Symphony's innovative programs. The curriculum will provide skills necessary to establish and build music education programs, music ensembles, and community arts organizations, through management and organizational leadership seminars. The year of study will culminate for each student with a project derived from practical internship experiences.
Arts & the Mind explores the vital role the arts play in human development during both youth and older age, and shares stories and cutting edge scientific research on how music, dance, painting, poetry and theater markedly improve well-being at both ends of life.
Hosted and narrated by Lisa Kudrow, Arts & the Mind makes the point that art is not a “luxury,” but central to the development of the human brain in youth and keeping our minds sharp as we get older. “At a time in our history when arts education is being diminished in our schools, these films document how the arts positively shape young minds, and keep our minds agile as we age,” host Lisa Kudrow said. “I am pleased and proud to help share this message with viewers of all ages.”
