A Universal Language
Music has a way of bringing people together. At the Music Resource Center we provide a safe, inspiring environment for young people to explore the power of music. As a non-profit housed in the historic Mt. Zion Baptist Church in downtown Charlottesville, the MRC brings together professional studio gear, practice spaces, quality mentorship, and an encouraging community. We’re impacting the lives of tomorrow’s influencers.
WHAT WE DO
The Music Resource Center provides a Safe Place for area young people. 76% of MRC members feel strongly that they are safe at the Center – as compared to 18% in their respective school.
We teach Real World Skills both in and out of the recording bay. A number of our members have used material they developed at the MRC as their music portfolio – successfully applying to competitive college programs.
The MRC gives students access to local musicians, professional , mentors, and exposes them to the powerful positive force of music.
