This project, the Northwestern University AMPED program (Arts and Music Program for Education in Detention Centers), is a music composition program that provides weekly computer music instruction for youth in the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center (JTDC). Through the program, led by faculty, staff, and students from Northwestern, detainees learn technology and music skills while creating original music compositions during their time in the detention center. This program is part of a broader effort to connect universities with prison populations through arts and music education. Funding supports all of the program components including weekly music instruction, and weekly mentoring sessions with a group of trained Northwestern students.
