Started by a number of Tribeca residents, the after-school program has quickly grown into 8 classes starting September 20 and running through June 2005. There are 5 age groups: Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grades.

With a brand new facility at 67 Hudson Street (at Jay Street), D.A.D. will host the school. The weekly classes create a fun environment where the children can express and explore their Jewish identity. Through music, dance, arts & crafts, the kids learn about our rich heritage through the holidays, stories, and Hebrew. We will be offering a unique insight into the weekly curriculum through our parents' password protected website.

Sign up for the limited space.

Under the direction of Justin DiCioccio, Dean of Jazz, Manhattan School of Music

Featuring students from MYF supported programs of MSM and two MYF Scholarship winners, Matthew Marantz, Jazz Saxophone (2004 MYF $25,000 Scholarship) and Gerald Clayton, Piano (2002 MYF $15,000 Scholarship).

The Music for Youth Foundation has two primary missions: To identify, fund and lend our experience to innovative programs that make quality music education available to young people, and to create scholarship opportunities for exceptionally talented youth who choose to make music their life's work.

MYF raises funds from the music industry and from other private entities to create resources for outstanding and innovative music programs in many disciplines. In the past five years, MYF has given over $2.2 million in grants to over 40 programs. These grants provide top-notch education and instruction with a special emphasis on students from underprivileged areas. In addition, MYF selects extraordinarily talented young musicians for career building $25,000 scholarships on an annual basis, thereby helping to sustain the next generation of artists and teachers.

One such example of the Foundation's support are the guests as part of the benefit from The Manhattan School of Music. For more information, please visit www.musicforyouth.org.
