University Resources for Kids

A friend of mine who had heard about our piano lesson dilemma suggested that local university music programs may have group lessons for kids taught by very talented graduate students. It turns out they do and they are a fraction of the cost of private lessons and about half what our community music school charges. But it's still more than we can afford right now, which is, well, nothing. But it may help some of you.

Our nearby university also has something similar--inexpensive swimming classes taught by the swim team in the spring and the fall. It is a fundraiser for the team, and is great experience (sometimes one on one) for the kids.

There are probably lots of other programs. Have you heard of any?
