 The 9th Annual Teach Music Week

FREE Music Lessons to Celebrate 9th Annual Teach Music Week
Check out participating partners in Minnesota here!

The 9th Annual Teach Music Week will be celebrated Monday, March 20th through Sunday, March 26th.  This annual week-long holiday invites musicians, music schools, music stores and other music organizations to offer a FREE lesson or class to new students (both children & adults).  This year, over 1,000 locations in a dozen countries will participate, including the U.S., Australia, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, the Philippines, Portugal and the United Kingdom.

Teach Music Week is celebrated annually during the 3rd week of March to coincide with national Music in Our Schools Month®.  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 choral classes.

Vincent 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 new generation of musicians who will continue reaping the many benefits of playing music, long after the month of March is over.”
