Rock to the Future is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2010 that provides music education for Philadelphia’s underserved youth at no cost to them or their families. Using music, our programs ignite passion and creativity, support academic achievement, and improve self-esteem. We empower individuals and strengthen communities.

What We Do

Through an after school program, in-school music clubs, summer programs, and one day events, we served over 600 youth each year with free contemporary music education. Students learn guitar, bass, drums, our piano, collaborate and write original music, learn music theory foundations, and perform live at professional venues.

Our after school program boasts a 100% college attendance rate and our students have seen incredible improvements in social skills, academic achievement, and musical ability.
