A Message from Mr. A


Our school music program has grown leaps and bounds over the past 4 years. When I came to the school (5 years ago) there was no program at all. In that time, primarily with the help of Donors Choose, I was able to raise over $30,000 worth of instruments and materials to build a thriving program.


The music program has grown so much in the past five years, and I want to do my best to keep pushing it forward. Our program has received media exposure from the Philadelphia Daily News, Inquirer, WHYY and South Philly Review, as well as a wonderful segment on NBC10 (hosted by Aditi Roy). They kids love their music and I want to continue to build the program and offer them every musical opportunity I can. 




Do you remember that feeling when the music "bug" bit you?
