We believe that music can help people heal, and that everyone benefits from music education. We are committed to:
1) helping students with disabilities and/or extreme hardships get scholarships for lessons and a quality instrument at home to learn on.
2) helping extraordinarily gifted students get the education they need to reach their full potential.
We want students with disabilities to have the healing of mind that comes from exercising the whole brain through learning music. We sponsor local students with brain injuries, disabilities of all kinds, and their families by giving them scholarships and a quality instrument to learn on. You can help sponsor a student for as little as $20 per month, and its fully tax deducable! Click through to see some of our most popular plans!
We want to create a local "Encouragement Center" where students of all ages can come to learn music in groups, and perform for the public. Our goal is to raise $1.5M to purchase a center in Arroyo Grande, where we can build a state of the art whole brain learning center that serves local senior citizens, those with disabilities, and at risk children in our community. If you want to help us build an encouragement center to change lives in SLO County, please help us by donating. No gift is too small.
We take cash donations as well as used pianos and other instruments in good condition. We will send out someone to look at the piano, and if we can take it, we will pay for the moving. The high end grand pianos are sold to pay for scholarships, and the smaller pianos are given to a student in need to use for free. 95% of all donations are spent on client services. All of our workers are volunteers. All donations are tax deductable!
Our community needs you! If you are a musician, and/or have experience working with students with special needs, you may be able to become a MUSE Mentor. MUSE Mentors work with elderly students, and students with disabilities, helping them heal find their unique musical self expression. If you don't play, we also need volunteers to help with small tasks, including office work and help with donor drives. Making a difference only takes a little time, but the rewards last a lifetime.
