On July 12th we launched an online fundraiser to support tuition assistance, instrument purchase and our Elementary Strings Program. With the generous support of an anonymous donor and 55 members of the community we exceeded our goal and raised $11,007 by July 31, 2017 with more pledges still coming in!
Music Education supports language development, increased IQ, neurological activity and growth, complex task coordination, spatial-temporal skills that aid in learning math, achieving better test scores, and increasing student engagement and success. Here’s a quick look at some of the many benefits of music education from PBS Parents.
Our daughter Amelie has been inspired and committed to the fun and the grit in the SFYSA and she's ready to rosin up her bow in the YPO this 2017-2018 Season, and Giselle, Dan and brother Coleman are 100% behind her and her new ensemble! ~ BRAVO ~
The work of this organization is so needed! Thank you!
Thanks so much for a great experience for Santa Fe kids!

This is inspiring to see this grassroots level of support for their kids where local government doesn’t. :-)
