The Music Immersion Experience Program at Roosevelt Elementary School in San Gabriel is a tuition free, comprehensive music program provided for every student, every day at Roosevelt Elementary School in San Gabriel, California. The models of El Sistema, Harmony Project, The Conservatory Lab Charter School in Boston, as well as traditional, local programs, were used in the careful development of this program.
The MIE program consists of a "fundamental period," which all students participate in automatically, and an "elective period," which students in the 2nd-5th grade can optionally participate in. The traditional school day has been extended to accommodate the MIE program. Currently the program serves 386 students in TK-5th Grade.
There are 18 part time Resident Artists and 3 Assistants currently on the MIE staff. The MIE program is administered by the SGUSD Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator, Samantha Theisen, Roosevelt Elementary Principal, Cheryl Wilson, and Assistant Principal, Ann Anderson (See STAFF page for more info)
The Music Immersion Program at Roosevelt Elementary is supported by the San Gabriel Unified School District, and is free to the students. SGUSD considers the subject of Music to be a vital part of our students' well rounded education, and it is greatly supported by the school district on all levels. Additional Support through a grant has been generously provided by the D'Addario Foundation.
