The most important and fulfilling work Bizzon does is helping young people find their voice through music. After years serving as a program director and instructor at multiple youth organizations, he founded The Scratch Sessions, a program providing free DJ and music production lessons, career training and mentorship to young people in Milwaukee. Bizzon teaches that same curriculum in Milwaukee Public Schools in an effort to expand access to arts education for underserved students. His expertise in designing programming, creating and leading workshops and organizing public events led to a national reputation in youth work and opportunities like the Lead Teaching Artist role at The Residency, Macklemore’s youth music program in Seattle.
