Afterschool at MAP: Care and Creativity
Unique Offering: Learn computer programming with our Music+Code curriculum
Our Background, Our Future
Coder, Walter Bender, and Musician, Devin Ulibarri, paired up in 2015 to create something together, and what they ended up with is known as “Music Blocks”. Music Blocks is a Sugar Labs project and is free/libre and has had contributions from students all over the world.
In 2018, they created Remake Music LLC to create curriculum materials and training services to help teaching artists to empower them with a new tool for teaching and learning.
In 2019, they created “MAP Family Learning Center” and brought Devin’s wife, Chie, onboard to teach art (thus the “a”). Their son, Kai, assists with many things, including beta testing Music Blocks, helping reset the room after classes, and posing for photos. Walter’s grandson, Teddy, is becoming quite the skilled coder and musician himself.
We are enjoying the journey together as a family, and extend our invitation to you to join ours.
