Philadelphia (PRWEB) March 02, 2017
It is estimated that over 600 Music Schools across 48 states will be participating in the 3rd Annual "Teach Music America" from March 20th to March 26th . During this week, Keep Music Alive is encouraging musicians and music schools across the country to offer one free 30 minute lesson to new interested students. All interested music students (children and adults) are also encouraged to seek out a participating music school or musician. Teach Music America Week is held every year during the 3rd week of March to coincide with National "Music in Our Schools Month" (MiOSM).
Vincent James, founder of Keep Music Alive states: “We all know that sometimes the biggest hurdle to doing something is just getting started. With Teach Music America, we are hoping to give birth to a multitude of new musicians who will continue reaping the benefits of playing music long after the month of March is over.”
Some of the largest music school chains in the nation will be participating with many of their locations including the Guitar Center, Music & Arts and legendary School of Rock where complimentary intro music lessons are offered year-round.
