#24: Free pianos for disadvantaged kids

The positive benefits of playing music are well known. But instruments are expensive and courses even more so. St Louis based non-profit Pianos for People aims to eliminate these barriers by providing both free pianos and free lessons to children of low-income families. In this episode, executive director Matt Brinkmann tells us how the concept works and what impact it has on the children.

Hosted by Ed Crasnick and Jonathan Widder; edited by Leon Wolf.
