Seven Mile Music
SLG

Seven Mile Music has operated in Brightmoor for four years, and will be launching the first annual, free five-day-a-week music summer program in Brightmoor, Detroit --- the Brightmoor Arts Camp.

The program seeks to build long-term mentoring relationships with its students, by keeping them engaged year-round through our U of M student volunteer teachers.

In 2012, creative arts funding was slashed in Detroit Public Schools. Children in Brightmoor, one of the poorest neighborhoods in the country, are no longer exposed to the creative arts as they are brought up. In an area where there is already a dearth of productive and engaging activities for children, these cuts create a developmental gap.
