MUSE One-on-One

MUSE mentors and mentees will meet virtually at least once a month. Applicants will be paired with mentors from the Founding Membership and experts among the MUSE membership based on areas of interest, skills desired, as well as the preferences and expertise of the mentors. This program will provide an opportunity for MUSE members to spend valuable one-on-one time together and develop a relationship with a mentor that will hopefully carry on past the official six-month timeframe. Participants can select individual music disciplines such as music composition, vocal arrangements, music direction, orchestration, and more.

Program will take place July 2022- January, 2023
