Music For The People, NYC was created by Clifton Anderson and Nioka Workman in 2013 to build community by sharing musical instruction, performances and cultural activities worldwide. The idea has blossomed into a creation of several successful programs around the New York City area. Our programs are affordable and low cost. We give access to families and children who have been underserved. It is our mission to increase the appreciation for music, for the artist and for the healing benefits that music has on the human soul.
