ABOUT PMP

Based in Paterson, New Jersey, the Paterson Music Project (PMP) is an El Sistema-inspired program of the Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts that uses music as a vehicle for social change by empowering and inspiring children through the community experience of ensemble learning and playing. PMP provides intensive, low-tuition musical training to students throughout Paterson after school. Students study a primary instrument (violin, cello, viola, bass, clarinet, flute, or trumpet) and participate in ensemble practice and instrumental sectionals. Students also study music theory, music history, aural training, and singing. Students perform frequently for the school and community.

PMP launched its first site at the Community Charter School of Paterson in January 2013 with 32 second graders and has since added a new class of students each year. In January 2015, PMP partnered with the Paterson Public Schools to open a second site serving students from Paterson Public School 1 and 26. Most recently, through the support of a 21st Century Learning Grant, PMP began a Woodwinds and Brass Program in January 2016 at the Community Charter School of Paterson Middle School. There are now over 200 students in the program across the city grades 1-8.
