Discover the largest free music afterschool program

Rosie’s House is a free musical program for inner-city and at-risk kids. Founded in 1996, Rosie’s House began with 45 students attending afterschool music classes in a small home in an impoverished neighborhood. Over the course of the past twenty-years, Rosie’s House has grown to a full-fledged community music school with 400 students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds enrolled annually. As one of the largest free music afterschool programs nationwide, Rosie’s House is making a huge difference for the kids. The founder Rosie Schurz and her family were forced to evacuate their home in Munich and flee to the German countryside. On her family’s journey to safety, seven-year-old Rosie, who had just started music lessons, had to leave her violin behind. She was devastated over the loss of her instrument and it inspired her to create Rosie’s House. Learn more about Rosie’s House at https://rosieshouse.org/
