About the Program
Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) is starting a private lesson pilot program at Rosewood Initiative (SE 162nd & Stark in Portland, OR). The program, funded by a grant from the City of Portland, provides full-scholarship instrumental instruction to school-age youth in East Portland, with preference to students in school programs in the districts of Centennial, David Douglas, Reynolds, and Parkrose. It is supported by the Community Music Center, Inc.
We are on target to start lessons in mid-June 2017. Registration forms and details available soon. Come to the (Re)Open House at Rosewood Initiative on Thursday, May 25, from 6 - 8 pm (RSVP at Rosewood Grand Re-Opening).
Rosewood is under renovation Nov. 2016 - March 2017, developing their facilities to serve the community better, including installation of a specialty-built music room for our lesson program. Thanks for your patience while the construction is underway and programs are on hiatus until completion.
