PROJECT BRIDGE


Project Bridge

OVERVIEW

Bloomingdale School of Music’s Project Bridge program is a full scholarship program for talented middle and high school students who cannot otherwise afford private lessons.

Project Bridge nurtures a student’s musical talents through a weekly private lesson with a gifted teacher. Teachers work with students to build on their strengths and show them how to grow their skills on their instrument. The musical development from lessons allows the students to pay it forward and contribute more in their school band or orchestra.
