A.N.T.H.E.M. is looking for music superhero recruits! A.N.T.H.E.M. stands for Apprentice Now Training for Heroic Effort in Music. The focus of Anthem is musicianship skills with a growth mindset.

Students will train and work on 8 mission assignments earning musical “superpowers” throughout the year in a growth mindset setting.

The A.N.T.H.E.M. mission assignments will be related to everything that makes our music shine. (Technique, notes, rhythm, dynamics, articulations, hearing, sight-reading and performance, etc...)

While each mission assignment will have a specific superpower they are working towards, how that assignment is passed is up to the teacher. The mentors will give a general introduction to what the superpower is and then you will give a more specific assignment.

For example, the first mission assignment is to work on their super strength. As the teacher, you can determine what that means in your studio. Does it mean strong technique (proper position, playing, etc.) Or do you want them to accomplish certain scales and arpeggios?

Students will choose a super mentor who will encourage them along their mission. (Mentor support is through videos they watch through the mission cards. See preview video for the introduction example.) The end goal is for them to complete the A.N.T.H.E.M. training program and become a music superhero.
