We all know how important it is for children to learn music. It changes a child’s brain and helps them with learning other subjects besides music but lessons are expensive. Because of that, I am always on the look out for free lessons so when I heard about an amazing opportunity for our children to learn music for free in New York and I had to pass it on. Please note, however, that there is a wait-list but as my mom says, “Nothing tried, nothing gained”. Here’s more information on this wonderful organization:
Free Lessons for Kids?
How It Works
To succeed, every musician needs three elements: passion, hard work, and opportunity. Due to difficult circumstances, countless families are unable to afford the high cost of private music lessons which are essential for any aspiring classical musician. This project locates dedicated families with a child interested in music and offers them the opportunity to take private music lessons.
A pillar of the project is the element of service that students in turn provide to their community. By giving back in the form of recitals to social groups such as the elderly and homeless, students and their families become active owners of the project.
OMP offers students full tuition scholarships. High quality instruments are provided if needed.
There are also free music lessons online if you have a child who can learn just by watching a video. Please share any free opportunities you know of in the comments. Thanks.
