Project-Based Learning

STYLE Programs

STYLE is a wonderful way to spark interest in reading and literature through the magic of music. Education Director, Nate Bogopolsky(Certified Teacher), and STYLE Teaching Artists can deliver a variety of music and reading oriented educational programs that will result in an original song inspired by a popular book. The song co-written by your students and the Teaching Artist, will be available online to cherish for years to come. STYLE builds in learning from the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Skills connecting reading, writing and music while inspiring communication and collaboration to make the programs both educational and fun!

We align with the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Skills.

Project-Based Learning

Students work in a highly collaborative environment, building lasting connections to reading, music, fellow classmates, and the world.


We challenge students to think critically and connect the themes of a book to themselves, to other texts, and to real world problems.


Students collaborate in the songwriting process, applying their connections and conversations to generate a song inspired by the book.


Taking their collaborative work to the next level, students create artwork and a professional recording of their song using 21st century skills and technology.

Bring STYLE to your school.
