Over 600 Music Schools across 49 states will be participating in the 3rd Annual “Teach Music America” Week from March 20th to March 26th. During this week, the organization Keep Music Alive is encouraging all musicians & music schools to offer one free 30 minute lesson to new interested students (kids & adults). Anyone who is interested in learning to play an instrument is also encouraged to seek out a participating music school or musician. Teach Music America Week is held every year during the 3rd week of March to coincide with National “Music in Our Schools Month” (MiOSM).
Vincent James, co-founder of Keep Music Alive states: “We all know that the biggest hurdle to doing something is often just getting started. With Teach Music America, we are hoping to inspire a multitude of new musicians who will continue reaping the education, social & therapeutic benefits of playing music long after the month of March is over.”
