Prince’s Paisley Park Expands Minneapolis Music Education Program

Paisley Park, in partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools, is offering a Music Education Program.

Paisley Park is the private estate and recording complex of the late singer Prince, which was converted into a museum after his death.

The program will be first implemented in the city’s Fine Arts Interdisciplinary Resource (FAIR) School, where students will have access to free tours at Paisley Park and other music education experiences.

Paisley Park tour manager Mitch Maguire said in a statement that, “Prince constantly pushed himself to reach new heights and taught others to expect the same from themselves”. “He was a passionate advocate of music education and its ability to inspire children and adults alike, and we look forward to fulfilling this tenet through our work with MPS,” he told local news outlet KARE.

Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent Ed Graff said he is looking forward to continued collaboration with Paisley Park.
