With music and art programs often the first thing to be eliminated from school curriculum due to budget cuts, more than a million students across the country can no longer study music in school. That’s why private programs that grant scholarships to study music are so important.
TKN’s report focuses on Concordia Conservatory student, Craig Murray, whose musical journey began at age 9 and continues as he studies piano performance at Vanderbilt University Blair School of Music. Craig benefited from the Conservatory’s scholarship program which strives to make music education available to everyone.
Teen Kids News reporter Ava attended Craig’s senior recital, where she had the opportunity to interview Craig and his mother Gerene, as well as other Conservatory students and faculty. Ava is a sophomore at Eastchester High School and has been a TKN reporter for 3 years.
