I would like to send out a big thank you to everyone who showed up at Coyote Station this past Sunday. You helped us raise enough money to get a few new students into private music lessons. Thank you also to the awesome staff at Coyote Station who came out and worked on their day off in support of our music lesson agenda. I’d also like to give thanks to all of you who weren’t able to make it but showed your support by sending donations or just spreading the word. Every little bit helps and we plan on continuing to make this happen.
Everyone that I had a chance to speak with at the event was very passionate about music and was there to support it. Many people see music and music lessons as extra curricular and not as important as other subjects. Musicians who have had training with music lessons know the discipline that it gives to the individual. We feel that many students out there are in need of a teacher and simply don’t have the money to pay for it. It’s very unfortunate when a child has a deep longing to make something of themselves and they don’t have the tools or the guidance to do it.
Make sure to follow us as we will post pictures and videos showing the progress of our students. Please continue to help out by spreading the word. Sharing our links is a tremendous help. Special Thanks to Bobby McManus, Shotgun Soul, and The Flying Crowbars for outstanding musical performances.
Check back with us for upcoming events and opportunities to get involved. If you wish to volunteer please send us and email using the link in our website menu.
Thank You for helping us provide free music lessons
