Wilson Avenue School
Wilson Avenue School is already in many ways one of the only schools in the Newark, New Jersey that embraces the performing arts as an integral part of its curriculum. While schools across the country continue to cut the arts, and especially the performing arts, Wilson Avenue has allowed for the development of special programs within its robust music program. As our numbers have grown, so has involvement and appreciation of music. Our students have a desire to learn music and show their abilities to the community at large.
The Keys of Inspiration will allow our program to make leaps and bounds in developing music in our school, not just in growing the numbers of the students who benefit from the advantages that a sound musical education provides, but in the depth of knowledge and inclusion of younger students that a fully supported piano lab can provide. We are hopeful that the Keys of Inspiration influence and effect on our school will be dramatic, obvious, and permanent.
