About Rock to the Future:
As budget cuts in Philadelphia continue to remove arts and music education from city schools, many youth do not receive the benefits of music education. Rock to the Future is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2010 that provides music education to Philadelphia’s underserved youth at no cost to them or their families. Starting with only 13 students three years ago, Rock to the Future has expanded programming to serve over 300 additional children a year with free Saturday music workshops at the Philadelphia Free Library for Philadelphia youth age 3-17 and their families; a music summer camp; and a new MobileMusic pilot program, which Rock to the Future will provide in partner schools this year at a time of great need for local schools.
