About WMMTM

The What Music Means to Me Project celebrates the value of music in education and in the quality of life.  In the following pages you will meet interesting and fascinating people whose stories about what music means to them will move you and inspire you.

The purpose of the What Music Means to Me Project is to raise public awareness of the benefits of music making using photographic images and personal statements. In an emotionally palpable way, this project illustrates the intangible benefits of music through first-hand accounts and compelling stories: saving a student from street gangs; helping a student cope with anorexia; giving a student the courage to pursue their dream even when it meant being homeless. You will meet individuals who talk about how music made all the difference; people who range in ages from 16 to retirement and for whom music has irrevocably changed their lives.

Through these images and personal statements, the What Music Means to Me Project gives music students a voice to tell their story of how the power of music has affected their lives and will shape their future.

PROJECT CANDIDATES range from high school age students to retired individuals. Candidates are selected through consultation with their teachers and are chosen based on how music or the arts has changed or positively affected their lives.

As part of the project, candidates must compose a personal statement that describes what music (or their art form) means to them.
