04 JunMy North End Music Melody Makers project
Here’s an email about it that I’ve sent to friends. Pass it on!
I am the Citizen Philanthropist for my North End Music Melody Makers-Detroit Project. I need to raise $3636 to reach my project’s financial goal to implement the Musical Education program.
This program is Education with an Arts and Culture focus thru Music! The funds for this project will provide for a group of 15 Detroit-area youth (ages 7-10) and their caregivers to participate in a once weekly, 3-hour music appreciation class for 12 weeks. Two mature educators with over 20 years of experience in music education, including symphony instruction, will donate their time and expertise to share a deeper understanding and appreciation of music.
Youth participants will benefit from building self confidence, improving self discipline and enhancing intellectual capacity. Research indicates that children exposed to music education are better problem solvers.
Parents and caregivers engaged in the support of the music program for their child will learn about the value of music education, and will also see improved self discipline and pride. Educator’s lives will be enriched by engaging youth and bridging the inter-generational gap between youth and their elders. By donating their time and knowledge, they pass a legacy of self-worth and commitment to Detroit-area youth.
There is a story behind how this idea came to me for a music program in the North End of Detroit. It’s a cute story, and I look forward to sharing with you. See it here on YouTube.
This project needs you! If you donate $10, we can reach our financial goal. Please take the time to read about my project and make your donation online today by clicking on this link.
