Goal Setting & the Fun to Fame Program
The MRC is here to help you achieve your musical goals. The Interest Survey you fill out as part of the orientation process helps us learn about our members’ goals so that we can acquire the necessary resources and support. Please be thorough, and be sure to keep it updated so that we have a clear idea about programs and equipment we need to bring to the MRC.
Fun to Fame is a 3-tiered program which allows students to achieve musical goals at their own pace and gain rewards for accomplishments. All students who participate in the program earn points for accomplishments, working with MRC staff to select a skill area they want to develop and benchmarks to measure their success. As students earn points they gain cool privileges and access to MRC resources, equipment and learning opportunities.
The three tiered program allows staff to accommodate highly motivated students while also encouraging less ambitious students to acquire more direction. Many students use our facilities every day. Some students have very ambitious goals while others enjoy dropping by to jam with friends. Our most engaged students spend more time recording in the studio, performing at our monthly open mic, creating music videos, and more.
