Music Therapy With Melodic Connections

Starting at the beginning of the year, we have had the opportunity to work with the wonderful people at Melodic Connections. Melodic Connections DayMelodic Connections is a music therapy program, and they have been having a class in our Kenwood store every week since March. The class is set up as a “Career Module”, helping the students learn what it takes to work in the music business. We have worked on many things from cleaning band instruments, selling pianos, making change, and more.

 

Over the past few weeks we have been working on something that is really fun- assembling a drum set to put on display at the store!

We started out by learning how to put the set together, everything from assembling drum heads to attaching the cymbals. We worked on using teamwork to give each person a specific job, so that the whole group could work together!

Next, we talked about what it takes to sell the drum set! We all made a sample flyer and price tag and choose from them all to see which one we thought was the best.

 

Our Kenwood location does not stock drum sets, so that means it was time for a road trip! Melodic Connections arrived at our Eastgate location and got straight to work- loading the drum set into the store, deciding where it should go, putting it together, and placing the price tag. It was a great day! Again, we love working with Melodic Connections- they remind us every week that we work in the best industry around!
