Rosie’s House is committed to playing a pivotal role in a child’s future and strengthening our community. Founded in 1996, Rosie’s House began with 15 students attending afterschool music classes in a small home in an impoverished neighborhood. Over the course of the past twenty-five years, Rosie’s House has grown to a full-fledged community music school with 500 students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds enrolled annually. As one of the largest free music afterschool programs nationwide, Rosie’s House uses achievement in music as a bridge to achievement in life; 97% of graduates in the past five-years have achieved their college and career goals.
