Music is a teacher in ways that are both philosophical and practical. And in New York City what you can learn from music is boundless. Armed with that knowledge, CityFM went to find a few of the different ways that music education is practiced in the city today. We met a punk professor from one the city’s toniest liberal arts universities, a legendary jazz musician who regularly holds court at community centers, a DJ who informs his club community about one of today’s most complex global issues, and visit a young non-profit passing along music skills to the next generation of aspiring noise-makers. Because you’re never too young or too old to learn from music.
