Rosie’s House is transforming the future of our community by providing students who are economically disadvantaged with opportunity and access through music education. Our innovative program promotes goal-setting and develops our students’ commitment to secondary education and community service. Rosie’s House is one of the largest free afterschool music programs nationwide, serving youth ages 5-18. Annually, Rosie’s House provides over 18,000 free music lessons, loans 300 free musical instruments, performs over 60 concerts to 12,000 audience members, and in our 23rd year of changing lives through music, we are still a 100% free program serving youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. The mission of Rosie’s House: A Music Academy for Children is to eliminate barriers to high-quality music education. Through music we support youth as they develop their full creative and personal potential.
