THE IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC
A struggling economy and budget cuts have affected the funding of arts and music programs in nearly every school in our area. With our Nationally Acclaimed Summer Rock Camp and Rock School programs, we hope to pick up where the schools have left off, especially in the creation and performance of music relevant and resonant to students’ lives. Each ensemble is filled by students from varying schools and backgrounds and are facilitated by one of our experienced and passionate music instructors.
We believe music to be of utmost importance in the well-being of all, especially kids, and want to assist as many as possible in the joys, challenges and community-building that music-making entails!
WHY A SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Contributions to our Scholarship Programs build community support and help assist lower-income students who might not otherwise be able to attend our seasonal Rock School or Summer Rock Camp programs.
Tuition for The Candyman Strings & Things Summer Rock Camp is $500.00 and Rock School is $250 for a 6-week program. These programs operate with limited resources but have vast expenses and we rely on donations and support from the community to assist with scholarship funding so that we do not have to turn any child away for inability to pay. Thus far, The Candyman and its donors have contributed to almost $40,000 in scholarships!
HOW IT WORKS AND WHO QUALIFIES
Our Scholarship application program is based on honesty and confidentiality. We do ask those who can afford to pay full tuition to please do so as we have a limited number of scholarships available.
We’re delighted with the success of this program and building more and more bridges in our community!
