The 5th Annual Teach Music Week will be celebrated from Monday 18th March through to Sunday 24th March and invites musicians, music schools, music stores, music & movement groups and other music organisations to offer a free lesson or class to new students (kids and adults).
An estimated 750 locations in over a dozen countries will participate including the U.S., Australia, Canada, Italy, Mexico, the United Kingdom and more!
Anyone interested in learning to play an instrument is encouraged to seek out a participating location or musician friend to help get them started. Teach Music Week also invites public, private and charter schools to schedule activities that will encourage more students to sign up for music, band and chorus classes.
Vincent James, co-founder of Keep Music Alive said: “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.”
