Our after school program teaches youth grades 6-12 how to play guitar, bass guitar, drums, or keyboard; to write and play original music; encourages collaboration with other student musicians in the form of a band; and provides venues for the students to perform for the community – all while encouraging academic success. Youth attend Monday – Friday from after school until 6pm.
Over the course of the week, day campers will learn to play guitar, drums, bass, or piano, form a band, write original music, and attend creative workshops. Camp ends with final performance showcasing what campers have worked on. Both camps are co-ed and no experience is necessary; ages 7-12 or 13-17.

The Teen Music Lounge is a free, drop-in program for Philadelphia teens ages 13-17. Each month, a teaching artist (chosen by RTTF students) will lead workshops on Friday that teach students to play instruments, use music technology, write music and lyrics, and more. Teens don’t need any musical experience to attend, and registration is not necessary – simply stop by Fridays during the school year from 4-6pm.
