As a kid playing the clarinet and singing in the choir, Shannon de l'Etoile knew what she wanted to study in college. Now, she's an associate professor and music therapy program director at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami.
“It’s not a cliché; we really are like a family,” Dean Shelton Berg of the Frost School of Music said.
The University of Miami Frost School of Music was founded in 1926. For over 80 years, it has been a place full of people passionate about one common thing: music.
Sharing an interest in both music and the same instrument, freshmen from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami and seventh graders from the Greater Miami Youth Symphony are pairing up through a local mentoring program.
The Frost MusicReach mentoring program began this past academic year as a collaboration among UM's music school, Arts for Learning and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony.
