Starting on September 21, parents can sign their students up for free violin lessons in Hillsborough County.
This is a partnership between The Florida Orchestra and the University Area CDC's Prodigy Cultural Arts program.
Prodigy Cultural Arts is an arts-based/research-based prevention and diversion program for at-risk youth ages 5-18.
Prodigy uses visual and performing arts as a way to help young people develop life skills such as communication, leadership, problem solving, anger management, career aspirations, and goal setting.
The program is available at the following sites:
Roy Haynes Recreation Center
Gardenville Recreation Center
Thonotosassa Recreation Center
Cyrus Greene Recreation Center
Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestra
