Learning life’s lessons through music

The Plummer Home for Boys in Salem is a non-profit group home for teenage boys between 12 and 18. Many of the boys have a history of abuse and neglect, while some struggle with managing their behaviors.

Two years ago, the boys began tapping the keys of a donated piano.

This year, they wrote, composed and recorded their own CD. And it’s good.

Check out a few tracks below and read the full story on North Short Art Throb.
