Music Education Boosted By New Website

Monday, May 6, 2013

Music lessons and classes can be an expensive addition to any family’s budget…but one new public service campaign funded by the Ford and Kresge Foundations aims to change that. The Music Learning Alliance launched Monday. The project will help students find music teachers and supplement the cost of those lessons. Rhonda Buckley is with the Alliance. She's also the Executive Director of the Michigan State University Community Music School in Detroit. She tells WDET’s J. Carlisle Larsen why this service, and music education, is critical.
