Bringing Music to underserved students: Piano Pioneers Program
The UW's Piano Pioneers program provides scholarship piano lessons (and practice instruments if needed) to children and adults in the community who can’t afford the cost of full lessons. Lessons are held at the UW-Madison Mosse Humanities Building, and teachers are graduate students in the UW-Madison piano performance and pedagogy programs. Lesson times are flexible and are arranged between each student and teacher. The program receives generous support from the Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment, and the Evjue Foundation helps make this program possible.
