Rock to the Future is proud to present our free Teen Music Lounge! This weekly Friday program provides teens ages 13 - 17 with a safe and positive space to learn music, create their own projects, and collaborate with other teens. Each month features a different guest music teacher and exciting workshops on hip-hop, songwriting, voice and vocal improvisation, recording, digital music and technology, the power of music to make change, and more.

Teen Music Lounge takes place every Friday during the school year from 4 - 6pm at Rock to the Future, 2139 E Cumberland St, Philadelphia, PA 19125. This program is free to attend.
