Ridgewood schools provide foundation for indie rock bands
Really cool story on the NPR "The Record" website yesterday. The story is first in a series that looks at various places around the country and explores why music scenes grow where they do. Apparently, there are several indie bands with members who came up through the Ridgewood schools and who credit their early music education in our schools with giving them a jump on creating music. I'll be honest -- I have not heard of the bands and I feel a little older now because of it. Check out the full story by clicking here.
