Residencies consist of weekly classes over the course of several weeks, allowing students to more deeply participate in the creative process of arts learning. Two such residencies are available to select Chautauqua County students, with a focus on serving students with disabilities. Sing Me a Story focuses on the integration of vocal and instrumental music and stories, with an end goal of increased musical involvement and reading comprehension. I Can Drum integrates music learning with social emotional skill development through drumming. This VSA program is provided in 2019-2020 under a contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Generous support is provided for this program by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.
