Ruby Tilghman is a writer and musician dedicated to making Fine Arts accessible in schools. At age 12, she founded a nonprofit organization called Many Mini Musicians, which aims to fund fine Arts in public schools and create opportunities for students to experience the Arts. Through Many Mini Musicians, she has had the opportunity to advocate for increased Fine Arts funding at her state’s capital, host fundraising concerts that feature young performers, and author Ruby’s Recital. She hopes that this book will inspire children to find something they are passionate about, and bring awareness to the importance of Fine Arts education.
