A new partnership between the Aspen Music Festival and School (AMFS) and the AmeriCorps program has brought five music teachers to the valley. This new relationship is providing funding, training and management for the new full-time teachers, who have come to the valley this fall under the ArtistYear fellowship program. Margo Drakos is founder and CEO of ArtistYear, the new AmeriCorps program helping to expand arts education for adolescents. She said the Roaring Fork Valley is the first rural area in the country to work with these young educators.
