Music Live is a important cornerstone of MIM’s educational outreach, bringing live classical music performances free to K-8 schools throughout Nevada County. MIM yearly rotates performances by String quartet, Percussion trio, Brass quintet and Woodwind quintet using top notch professional musicians, exploring all the instrument families. Music Live is more than a performance, it’s an informance, a combination of performance, demonstration and teaching in a school assembly format. To make more of this experience, MIM captures the teaching moment by requesting that students write letters to the musicians describing (writing and drawing) what they saw and heard. This simple action helps students review the event and solidifies the experience. MIM collaborates with the Superintendent of Schools with this program.
