What We Do
Seven Mile Music is a student run organization that provides free weekly music and arts lessons to K-12 youth in the city of Detroit.
We are currently running a GoFundMe to raise money for our summer Brightmoor Arts Camp!
Who We Are
We are a student-driven initiative to bring music and arts education back to Detroit public schools.
Music Go Round Instrument Drive
Seven Mile Music is currently partnering with the Ann Arbor branch of the used instrument store Music Go Round! If you have an instrument that you no longer use and would like to donate it to our cause, bring it to Music Go Round Ann Arbor (2791 Oak Valley Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48103) and tell them that you would like to donate the instrument to Seven Mile Music.
Due to the total defunding of art and music programs in Detroit Public Schools, there exists a dearth of proper art or music education for Brightmoor’s children. This insufficiency is compounded by the shortage of summer programs for the 7000+ children in the neighborhood, and an absence of any focus on the arts. Finally, many Brightmoor families lack the resources and funds needed to afford independent music lessons or art classes, which are proven to help to foster a child’s development.
