I'm Still Young VIDEO

The Gift of Music Fund and local Kalamazoo organizations brought music education into a local classroom during the summer of 2013. Students independently wrote, practiced, and performed this song over the course of a handful of weeks. Mentors and artists from Double Phelix Studios guided the process and helped in the performances.

This program was made possible through collaboration with and support from the Kalamazoo Community Foundation, Communities in Schools Kalamazoo, and Double Phelix Recording.
