Right now, most everyone associates Butler University with the basketball teams Final Four success. One area that Butler truly shines is their music programs. In particular, their youth outreach program.
This is the 3rd year that my daughter has participated. She has improved her bass playing as a result.
In a time of budget cuts and the questioning of extra- curricular activity, music programs are still an important part of a kids education. Music is an Ambassador to nations. Our nation in particular is a leading exporter of our music – all genres. A rich tapestry that only a true melting pot can bring.
The visionary at Butler’s music department is the Jazz Departments Matt Pivec. You may mistaken him for one of the young students. He looks as young as them. He has shown dedication and commitment to teaching youth players the art of jazz.
Check put Butler’s music programs. As good as the basketball team.
