The Music Technology Access Project Celebrates 7th Year
James Abbott, Syracuse University Professor of Practice and Music Technology Access Project Director, and John Coggiola, Associate Professor and Chair of Music Education, were interviewed by Spectrum News for the news piece SU Students Teach Music Education to Youth.
The Music Technology Access Project is in it’s 7th year of providing children with disabilities the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument of choice. The program is a two-week camp taught by graduate students from the music department.
“For all the campers, this is the highlight of their year. They look forward to it all year, the lead up to knowing when the date is approaching that they get to get into the studio, relearn all the equipment, anticipating having new campers come into the program. There’s a portion of the campers that are new every year and then to have incredible music come out of it at the end that really moves your mind and your heart,” said Abbott.
