Welcome to the blog for Music Within Me. My name is Mark T. Burke, Founder and CEO of Music Within Me (formerly viaAcademies). I founded viaAcademies in 2008 as one of the nation’s first online music academies, dedicated to providing online music courses for K-12 students. After working in online learning for over 10 years, I wanted to ensure that students had access to music courses regardless of where they attended school. Millions of students take online courses each year to meet their educational needs. However, fee online music offerings existed….until now.

There are many reasons why students can’t get the music courses they want. Budget cuts have forced schools to eliminate music programs. My goal was to create a program that is cost effective yet provides high quality education. Along my journey to create and support Music Within Me, I work with a variety of people and variety of schools. Throughout this blog, you’ll find articles on music education, online learning, education, advocacy, outreach and beyond.

Enjoy, share, spread the word about the power of music. Music Within Me drives me each day to accomplish my goals. Let’s help kids say….I’ve got “Music Within Me.”
