Cleveland Institute of Music


A non-profit arts organization is turning inner-city Cleveland kids into classical guitarists. It's a growing outreach program started by the Cleveland Classical Guitar Society, that began working in the schools about six years ago. This past spring, they got a Cleveland Foundation grant to expand to an after-school program in the Clark Fulton neighborhood.

Citing the national conversation about the high cost of education, the Cleveland Institute of Music has announced that they will be lowering the tuition for incoming students.
