Broken Orchestra – Saving School Instruments
Broken Orchestra is an amazing short film directed by Charlie Tyrell that looks at the massive underfunding crisis of music in US schools.
In the last ten years, funding for musical instruments and lessons in American schools has plummeted. In 2007, the yearly figure spent on music in schools in Philadelphia was in the millions. Now, it’s in the tens of thousands. Teachers were devastated and struggled to put on even the most basic of musical performances. Some even reported seeing instruments literally falling apart in students hands.
