“Atypical Music” Project

Music School Project: Code name “Atypical Music”

Mission: To provide existing and aspiring musicians with the skills necessary to be successfully employed within the music industry (specializing in classical, jazz, Christian, soul, r & b music)

Vision: Establish a music school in Cumberland County that is both the venue and expertise needed to educate aspiring musicians and serve as a job resource center

Immanuel Comer, My Minstrel’s visionary, is currently making plans with other musicians in the area to create a school in the Cumberland County, New Jersey area.  After meeting through IGP events that Immanuel hosted at Life In Christ Ministries, he and Paul Schenck (saxophonist/woodwinds Christian, Gospel, & Jazz musician) began discussing a much larger vision that they shared for music education.  It is their hope that one day that this school will be a center for music education that will also promote community programs and provide postive music employment both directly and indirectly.
