This thesis project in education rolled out a program for training Vassar student musicians to be educators who then gave individualized music instruction to Poughkeepsie middle school music students. Great care was given to the positioning and approach to service learning as well as the preparation for quality instruction. Curriculum taught to the mentors, and many notes on how the project went are included.
