    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!

    In Morgantown, West Virginia, I’ve recently discovered PopShop http://popshopwv.com/#home
    The founders at West Virginia University graduates and it seems to be fairly popular in our town with both children and adults.

    Valley City State University in Valley City, ND has the only Community School of the Arts (CSA) in the state. It offers a youth choir and individual lessons on many instruments and voice, including the only string lessons available in town. There are numerous scholarships available and the Chamber of Commerce nearly fully supports the choir. Another great opportunity through a grant and CSA is the ability for young pianists to play annually with a professional regional chamber ensemble, performing piano trio repertoire.
