Help us provide violins for the Washington Conservatory of Music Tapestry Music Project's new Tapestry Violin Class: building musical bridges in immigrant communities through group violin lessons. Starting in Jan. 2018, classes will begin at a Silver Spring, MD housing site of the non-profit Montgomery Housing Partnership. Through the power of music, help us help children beginning a new life with their parents in the US. Please help put violins in their hands and music in their hearts.
About the Project
Families new to the United States often face special challenges. Music classes and lessons are a wonderful way to help children feel connected and confident.Music classes help children learn the English language through song. However, acquiring musical instruments and enrolling in music lessons is often a financial impossibility.
Since Tapestry Music Project was launched in spring of 2017 Washington Conservatory has provided free weekly Early Childhood Music classes to over 80 children ages 4 & 5 at two housing sites of the non-profit Montgomery Housing Partnership, A free 5-day summer beginning violin camp was provided for children ages 7 - 11 in partnership with CASA de Maryland, and inspiring concerts by the world-renowned Spanish Brass were presented to 700 students, parents and faculty of Arcola Elementary School in Silver Spring, MD. In addition, low-cost individual music lessons are offered to economically disadvantaged young musicians from other countries, at both our Westmoreland Circle and Glen Echo Park sites.
The new Tapestry Music violin classes are ongoing - as we raise more funds to purchase violins, we are able to add more students! Please help us put violins in the hands of every child from immigrant families that need some help in putting music in their children's lives.
Every $300 raised will purchase one student violin package: a violin, a violin bow and a case to carry them in. Help us reach our goal of $3,000 and providing 10 violins for 10 eager children!
