"Music Takes You Places"
Discover and develop your musical talents at the
"MUSIC TAKES YOU PLACES" (MTYP) summer camp!
Students learn piano, bass, choral, guitar or drums... along with music production!
Campers will attend music classes Tuesday through Friday at The Learning Center Charter School in
Murphy, North Carolina.
They will also go on a Saturday field trip to
reinforce principals learned throughout that week!
There will be a camp recital open to the public on
Sunday, June 30th, at the
Texana Community Center. (Time to be announced.)
Founded and directed by accomplished pianist, Latavius Mulzac, the "Music Takes You Places" program is designed to cultivate self discipline and awareness, emotional intelligence, and creativity in each student.
The goal is to guide each participant to a place musically that acts as a path to success in society.
Scholarships will be awarded by Jackie Ward Foundation to several MTYP campers this year!
Ages: 10+ (Grades 5-12)
Deposit: $50 due with registration packet (Click printable link above.)
Full payment is due June 18, 2019, (one week before camp).

We are a 501(c)(3) organization that strives to achieve our goals by nurturing and encouraging the development of children through education and the arts - tools to make them more complete individuals.
More particularly, the Foundation seeks to enrich and enhance an otherwise general education by introducing students to the
life-changing power of the Arts, while promoting business, entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering and math education.
The Jackie Ward Foundation has made
fantastic performances possible for
The Learning Center since 2011!
By staying engaged with our local youth, we are investing in the future of our region's community life.
The overall goal of the Jackie Ward Foundation is to ignite and galvanize
those who will eventually take on roles as community leaders and trailblazers.
