Rosie’s House: A Music Academy for Children will use a $10,000 TechFoundation grant to create a music technology lab including music theory software, a smart board and lap top stations for students to compose music.
“The technology lab will enhance the music education curriculum and provide a creative opportunity for composition and song writing,” said Becky Bell, executive and artistic director of Rosie’s House, 1875 N. Central Ave. “We will be able to provide our students with new ways of learning and opportunities to express their creative potential.”
David Altshuler, executive director of TechFoundation, added that Rosie’s House “is one of the few nonprofits ready to make the most of targeted technology investments.”
Rosie’s House is one of the largest free afterschool music programs in the United States, and relies on community support to provide the life-changing gift of music to students that would not be able to afford this opportunity. The technology grant will also be used to update existing database systems and graphic design software.
