The 4th Annual Int'l Teach Music
Week will be celebrated March 19th-25th. Formerly known as Teach Music
America, this annual week-long holiday invites musicians, music schools, stores & studios to offer a free lesson or class to new students (kids and adults). In 2017, there were over 600 participating locations in all 50 States and Canada. That number is expected to grow with locations now joining in from over half a dozen countries around the world.
Week is celebrated annually during the 3rd week of March to coincide with National
"Music in Our Schools Month" (MiOSM). Anyone interested in learning to play an instrument is encouraged to seek out a participating location. This year, Teach Music
Week is also inviting public, private and charter schools to schedule activities that will encourage more students to sign up for music, band and chorus classes.
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
Week, we are hoping to inspire a multitude of new musicians who will continue reaping the educational, therapeutic and social benefits of playing music, long after the month of March is over."
In addition to hundreds of independent music schools, some of the largest chains in the nation will be participating with many of their locations, including Music
& Arts, Kindermusik, Music
Together, Gymboree, Musikgarten and the legendary School of Rock. Take Lessons is also offering a free month of interactive group lessons through their Take Lesson Live portal. For more information or to find participating locations, please visit http://www.TeachMusicWeek.org
