In Philadelphia, there are so many wonderful programs for young people hoping to make music. While many of these programs are beyond the budget of most families, there are some amazing organizations that are providing music making opportunities for little to no cost. In a city with a school budgetary crisis (dozens of music teachers were laid off this year), it is good to know that many are still finding ways to provide music education to children. One program, Rock To The Future, provides lessons and group experiences to children and youth in the city: http://rocktothefuturephilly.org/. Are there any programs like this happening in your city or town? I would love to read about them!
