Philadelphia Elementary Schools Buzzing in Largest
WMG USA Partnership
Nearly 150 elementary schools in the School District of Philadelphia will be pioneering pBuzz in classrooms, enabling thousands of Philadelphia children to explore the benefits of playing instruments as part of WMG’s largest partnership in the US.
Frank Machos, Executive Director of the Office of The Arts & Academic Enrichment in Philadelphia, recently announced a bid to provide more opportunities for students to participate in music and the arts in Philadelphia elementary schools.
To do this, WMG is partnering with the Office of Arts & Academic Enrichment to implement a scheme similar to our work in UK schools.
“This illustrates our commitment to ensure access and equity to music education for all students. These plastic instruments – colourful, light, fun to play, and durable - have proved a big hit amongst our teachers and students and have already encouraged many more students to pick up a musical instrument for the first time – and play,” said Frank Machos.
