Music for the Mind

St. Louis Classical Guitar Society has teamed up with 25 area low-income and underserved schools — including Jennings Jr. High — to enhance their arts education. Volunteers go into the schools every week and work with the students, teaching them the basics of music and guitar. Students are also encouraged to help each other and act as peer mentors.

There’s a lot more to education than blackboards and textbooks. Behind the Minds takes you behind the school doors to highlight educational initiatives within St. Louis city and county K-12 schools. Watch for teachers, staff, administrators, and students who will blow your mind with innovative ideas and programs.
