Music education gives all students important tools to grow. Unfortunately, there is a music education gap in Philadelphia. It can be hard or impossible for families to find affordable music programs. That’s why we provide our innovative programs for free to all students. There are no auditions to join - we are many students’ first music class! Your support helps students rock in the classroom and at home!

Now more than ever, it’s important for us to stay connected. Students in our virtual classes have an important opportunity to connect with their peers. Music teaches students to work together towards a common goal. By creating music together, our students learn how to communicate, collaborate, and compromise with each other.

Thanks to your support, we are able to provide at-home instruments for students in our virtual programs. This fall semester alone, we have delivered over 70 instruments to Philly youth.

Music is also a powerful outlet for emotion. Our virtual programs help students express their emotions in a healthy, creative way. Your support helps students relieve stress, connect with their peers, and express themselves in a supportive environment that fosters self-love.

All donations help youth rock on stage and in life (and are tax deductible as allowable by law). EIN: 27-2497163
