Did you know that:
- Due to budget cuts, most Philadelphia youth do not have access to music education in schools
- Youth living in poverty in Philadelphia face many obstacles, including soaring crime rates in low-income neighborhoods
- Music education can improve grades, graduation rates, social skills and standardized test scores, improve self-esteem and inspire at-risk youth
At Rock to the Future, we believe that ALL children should have access to music education to inspire and nurture their creativity despite their income level or social obstacles. We know that music has the power to heal, inspire and motivate them to follow their dreams. To raise awareness about the benefits of and need for music education programs for underserved Philly youth, Rock to the Future is excited to launch our new #MusicForAll campaign!
Beginning today with amazing singer Pia Toscano of American Idol, Rock to the Future will launch a new video every week between now and our 1st Annual #MusicForAll Ball on Saturday, April 14th. Our videos will feature national and local artists and music industry professionals sharing their stories about why music and music education matter to them.
We hope these videos will inspire you to get involved and help Rock to the Future create more opportunities for underserved Philly kids. Join the campaign and help support #MusicForAll. Watch Pia’s video here.
