The Delta Music Institute’s Mobile Music Lab (MML) program works mainly with students in the Mississippi Delta using music audio/video technology to nurture and encourage creativity. This program teaches students the basics of songwriting, the process of recording, producing and performing original musical works, beginning video production, and the importance of Mississippi’s musical heritage.
The MML team also uses the art of storytelling through music, song, and video to complement classroom curriculum.
The bus contains professional level audio equipment, musical instruments, and software that provide students and their schools with opportunities for recording sessions, performances, tours, and instruction in media arts.
