The Castle at 501 Prospect has been designed to enhance the Beloit and Stateline Community. Our educational programs have been developed to strengthen the creativity of blooming artists and musicians.
CONSERVATORY CLASSES FOR MUSIC
Designed for ages 2+ the music programs at The Castle are offered in private or group lessons. Lessons in all genres and the majority of instruments are offered by our acclaimed teachers.
The Castle is the proud home of THE YOUTH UNITE, a local bully prevention program that teaches character education and validates struggling youth. Rooted in the firm belief that peer pressure and bullying squanders our youths’ imagination, self-esteem and desire to achieve their goals, The Youth Unite provides practical solutions that focus on the positive aspects of individual communities and schools. Please visit our website at www.theyouthunite.com or find us on facebook.
THANKS TO ECOLAB!!
The Castle Conservatory has been home to a group of young persons who’ve benefitted from the Castle’s Music Therapy program, a program created with the help of a substantial grant from EcoLab!! Music educators at the Castle spend quality time with victims of traumatic experiences, exploring all facets of music, including instrumental lessons, vocal performance coaching and songwriting. This interaction has proven to be effective in terms of refocusing these young unfortunates. Hear what people are saying about this extraordinary opportunity:
“The Castle has been very helpful to my clients. Through music and art, they have found a much needed outlet to express their feelings and emotions. I am grateful for the help and support provided by The Youth Unite!”-Amanda Isunza, Counsellor with the Beloit Sexual Assault Recovery Program
“The music therapy program has been a blessing for my children! They look forward every week to going to the Castle. It has made our lives better.”-Mother of therapy students
