UNI music department teams up with Boys and Girls Club

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Students and staff at the University of Northern Iowa brought tunes to the Boys and Girls Club of Waterloo Thursday afternoon.

It was to kickoff a new partnership between the music department and the Boys and Girls Club of Black Hawk County.

Starting next month, club members will get to take lessons in piano, trumpet, violin and other string instruments from the students.

Through this program we're hoping that perhaps we have a new musical performer or a music teacher or something that just wants to do something positive for a hobby, but hopefully we're building great futures for these kids, said Executive Director of Boys and Girls Club, Chuck Rowe.

The program, dubbed ''Music Makers Conservatory'' will teach the local youth the importance of focus, perseverance, teamwork and academics.
