This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.

In September, the District launched the Keys for Philly Kids campaign, a fundraising initiative with a goal of $3.5 million to bring music programs like this one back into schools. South Philadelphia High was chosen as the location to pilot the District’s music education innovation strategy, which seeks creative solutions to the need for more music education. “Introduction to Music” has been adopted as part of the 9th-grade curriculum at the school as a way to restore music education.
