Please go to our website www.musicandartsusa.org Do you remember the first time you picked up an instrument? That incredible feeling? There are too many children who will not have that opportunity because schools are continuing to slash their Music and Arts budgets. Our mission is to bring music into schools that cannot afford them. We need your help! Please go to our website and contribute. Every $10 makes a big difference. We know there are plenty of reasons not to take action, however, as musicians, thee are so many reasons to help these kids

An Endorsement: Having known David Gross (the man with this idea/project) for decades, I can tell you that his heart is in the right place, as aew his skills.

Like I always tell inner city teachers: "The choice is yours for your students - music ...or crack cocaine?"

Thanks Elliot! We miss you on this side of the pond!

Thanks Rob! I wanted it too illustrate that Duke Ellington philosophy that there are only two kins of music...Good and Bad. Moreover, it is important that we can get all kinds of musicians to help us spread the word and garner donations. THink about the wide scope on our Advisory Board from Reggie Workman to Rex Brown.

Tue., Jun. 12, 2012 - 10:39 AM

Say Rob, if you could help us spread the word, we are looking for 2000 new contributors this week. We believe that for a small amount $10, we can fund this project by September.

Tue., Jun. 12, 2012 - 11:11 AM

I will do that and thanks!\

We launched our new and improved website yesterday!

Our goal is to work with 50 schools and work with 10,000 students.

We believe that thru a grassroots approach, we can acquire the funding to make this project a reality! After running through a variety of numbers we figured that if
70,000 people contribute $10
35,000 people contribute $20
28,000 people contribute $25
20,000 people contribute $35
etc
With all of the Social Networks it does not seem to me to be a daunting task.

All of us remember that first time we heard a piece of music, picked up an instrument and felt that magic! Isn't that why we are doing what we are doing today?

This is why I am asking all of you for your help! Can you help us spread the word? Can you find it within yourself to contribute at a minimum $10?

We believe that this is our most important task and the benefits are many.
