MINNEAPOLIS (CelebrityAccess) – Prince’s famed Paisley Park estate, recording complex, and now museum, has announced that it is partnering with Minneapolis Public Schools to expand music education.
The program will kick things off with the Fine Arts Interdisciplinary Resource school (FAIR school), whose students will gain free access to Paisley Park, as well as other music education opportunities.
Commenting on the partnership, Paisley Park tour manager Mitch Maguire said in a statement: “Prince constantly pushed himself to reach new heights and taught others to expect the same from themselves. He was a passionate advocate of music education and its ability to inspire children and adults alike, and we look forward to fulfilling this tenet through our work with MPS.”
Added Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent Ed Graff: “It’s fitting that this wonderful opportunity is starting with The FAIR School, which is a magnet high school in Downtown where the arts are integrated in all academic areas. I look forward to continued collaboration with Paisley Park and growing our partnership to provide even more MPS students with this experience.”
