WAV (formerly The Dick & Jane Project) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Columbus Ohio. The Project, founded in 2010, hosts collaborative workshops where middle school students are partnered with local musicians and producers to create radio-ready songs. The students write the lyrics and the musicians transform their words into song. Using music as the catalyst, WAV inspires students to want to write, an experience that lasts far beyond our workshops.
