Arts Leadership Program

The Iowa Makes Music Arts Leadership Program provides high school age classical musicians with intensive arts leadership training and one-on-one mentorship, empowering students to develop and lead their own arts leadership project in their home communities.

Each year, approximately ten teenage musicians from the greater Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area participate in an in-depth one-day leadership workshop. Following the session, they receive mentoring and support as they design and implement their own unique service projects in the spring.

This program, which is part of From the Top’s Arts Leadership curriculum, encourages young performers to explore their potential as artists, leaders and arts advocates in their own communities. Arts Leader projects might range from teaching music to younger children, to playing at a hospital, or raising money for a good cause.
