My Students

My middle school students are in a low income urban school. The students are starved for recognition and achievement. They want to achieve something of which they can be proud.

There are very few extracurricular activities available for my students and I would like to start one.

I would like to offer them free guitar lessons. I will donate my time and experience to teach them if the students can get the instruments donated to the school. You will be a real blessing to them.

My Project

My students will develop a great sense of achievement and esteem by learning to play these guitars. They need this extra curriculum project that will help them to excel. I've spent many years in the private sector watching how students improve in many areas like math and reading by learning to play a popular instrument like the guitar.

I would like to ask you to donate to this worthy endeavor and see what difference you could make in the lives of these middle school students.

What they learn in this project will go with them for the rest of their lives. Thank you.
