Free inside: The Music Class at Santa Ana Jail
Fierro, Joe
International Journal of Community Music, v3 n1 p143-150 Mar 2010
This article examines the workings of the music class at the Santa Ana Jail in Santa Ana, California. It gives us insight into a jail system and a music class focused on helping inmates position themselves to become productive members of society. In this article I examine how the facility encourages inmates' good behaviour and why the music class is a place where students can release their stress as well as have an outlet for their creativity. The music class creates an environment where the students can change their thinking and therefore truly believe that they can do things differently.
