Featured Video | "Inside Music Haven May 2018"
Open the door and you’ll see it: all life and love and a glorious mess of beautiful young faces and instrument cases in a light-filled expanse of music-making that fills an entire converted factory floor. This place in which A.C. Gilbert once manufactured “Erector Set” toys--introduced in 1913 as “Educational, Instructive, and Amusing”—is filled with young people engaged in variations on that same theme. They are making much more than music, and the space we now have the pleasure of calling home is more than classrooms and rehearsal spaces. It is a true haven.
"The House that You Built"
"Music Haven is a space where students feel safe, welcomed, valued, heard, and free to make music, make mistakes, take chances, try again, or ask for help. Everyone should have a place like that."
- Mandi Jackson
