Children learn both music theory concepts and forms of vocalization and harmonization. They rehearse pieces throughout the program and end the program with a concert performance for community members, funders, family and friends.
The goal of the Music Program is to instill the love of music in the children and give them a basic understanding of various forms of musical expression. The urban community choir will teaches the importance of working and singing together as a team.

Through a partnership with the LAB Project, the theater program will increase students understanding of the basic principles of performance art culminating in a final production of a theater plays. Students will be trained in the disciplines of acting, singing, dancing and stage craft while learning the history and rules of each craft. The objective of the theater program is to create a production of a theater play with the students of ACH Clear Pathways that will utilize community evolvement (audience members from their neighborhood), self expression, using art for a social cause and the basic fundamentals of performing. The students will work alongside professional actors in reaching the set goal while engaging their peers in ensemble building techniques and constructive criticism.
