State Division of Arts helps Delaware Music School grow The Delaware Music School (DMS) is a nonprofit music school with teaching branches throughout southern Delaware. DMS has found that, just like in the for-profit business communi- ty, success can cause temporary problems for nonprofits, as well. The Delaware Division of the Arts (DDOA) is supporting the music school through this difficult but exciting process with assistance provided by Dr. Nikki Castle of Castle Consulting. Castle Consulting is dedicated to "Building Futures Through Continuous Improvement," assist- ing both profit and nonprofit busi- nesses to prepare and plan for ef- fective organizational change. DMS grate- fully ac- knowledges this opportu- nity. In its 16 years of pro- viding the joy of music edu- cation to the community CASTLE of southern Delaware, the music school has mostly relied on the generosity of local churches for office and teaching space: In the past two years, especially with the exp,lo- sive growth of its early childhood programs under the direction of "Miss Debbie" Kee, DMS is hav- ing to seriously consider acquiring larger, more permanent office and studio space and developing a di- verse governing board with more members. Dr. Castle, whose work is being funded through the Technical As- sistance arm of DDOA, has just the right experience, knowledge and commitment to the arts need- ed to prepare the DMS for its chal- lenging future. The DDOA is a state agency committed to promoting and sup- porting the arts in Delaware. DDOA provides technical and fi- nancial assistance to artists and arts organizations and serves as a clearing house for information on the arts in Delaware.
