MACCL was established with a vision to provide quality music and art programs for children and youth.
The Music & Arts Center of Cultural Learning (MACCL) was founded by Victor D. Collins, Sr. in October 2004. Mr. Collins began by teaching private music lessons and group art classes in a home in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. In August 2006, MACCL moved into our present location one block south of Hardin Memorial Hospital, and we now enjoy 2,600 square feet of operating space.
MACCL was established with a vision to provide quality music and art programs for children and youth. We also envisioned developing a string program, forming a youth orchestra, and making our services available to disadvantaged children.
Today, we have eight music instructors that teach private music lessons and two art instructors teaching group art classes. Our instructors have either professional experience or hold college degrees in music or art.
We encourage our students to participate in various competitions that help build self-confidence, leadership skills, and self-disipline. Over the past three years we have had students to receive both full music and art scholarships from numerous colleges. Some of our high school students have earned first-chair placements at KMEA's all-state and all-district distinguished bands. We also have students who receive distinguished ratings at the KMEA solo and ensemble competitions.
In January 2007, we implemented our Music and Art Outreach Program to provide partial or full tuition costs for one year to disadvantaged school aged children who show interest in our programs. Other programs include: Young Artists of Hardin County Exhibit, Summer Music Program, and Youth Orchestra Program.
As the vision of MACCL continues to develop, we plan to stay the course, impacting the lives of our youth and community through the arts.
