A nonprofit organization

$7,600 Raised

100% complete

$6,000 Goal

Rosie's House is committed to strengthening our community. Our mission is to eliminate barriers to high-quality music education. Rosie's House supports youth in developing their greatest personal potential and we are committed to providing students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds with access to life-changing programs in which they would not otherwise participate. 

Rosie's House puts youth on a path for college and long-term success. The following stories are just some of the many illustrations of impact:

1. Current Rosie's House student, Sebastian, attends a school with no music program. Thankfully, he has had the opportunity to be a part of the Rosie's House Wind Ensemble for the last two years, learning the joys of playing the flute from Aldie Lopez, a highly-trained music educator. Through music education, Sebastian is learning critical life and learning skills.

Sebastian's mom, Laura, says that his teamwork, discipline and communication skills have all improved since enrolling at Rosie's House. These skills have helped him with his homework, gain confidence and even make new friends. Now, Sebastian is aiming to attend college and is confident that his time at Rosie's House will help him achieve this goal.

2. Saxophone student, Amy Dietrich, attended classes at Rosie's House for four years, until she graduated high school in 2018. Currently, she is majoring in Chemical Engineering at Arizona State University on scholarship. She says:

"The most important thing I learned at Rosie's House was perseverance. When there is a difficult part in a song, it is easy to give up but you have to keep pushing. This not only applies to music, but also to life."

Sebastian's and Amy's stories are not unlike that of other Rosie's House students. We hope to impact more Arizona youth and to ensure they have the resources and tools needed to reach their full potential.
