The Rhapsody Songsters


This program serves Seattle youth ages 11 - 18 who want to play music in social and performance settings. Each student who takes part agrees to:


  • Prioritize the study of one or two instruments.

  • Steadily explore their personal or cultural heritage.

  • Attend regular rehearsals and occasional field trips to regional music festivals and events. 

  • Challenge and elevate themselves and their peers. 

  • Commit community building and the values of The Rhapsody Project. 


Historically, “songsters” were musicians whose diverse repertoire allowed them to play whichever styles of music fit a given gig. Students learn songs in styles ranging from blues to minouche jazz, spirituals to waltzes. There will be multiple formats available for this class, including jam sessions, independent study, and virtual consultations with tRp staff.
