My name is Miles Shannon. I eat, sleep, play and love jazz. I play tenor saxophone at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts.
I recently auditioned for and got accepted into an amazing 5 week Summer Music program at Berklee College of Music. Berklee even gave me a $750 scholarship towards tuition. Unfortunately the cost for the entire program including tuition, room, board & airfare (I'm in Los Angeles, Berklee is in Boston) cost $8655. I'm contributing $700 I've received from previous scholarship competitions I've placed in, leaving me short $7,160.
So I'm reaching out to family, friends, philanthropists and music enthusiasts everywhere who love jazz like I do and who want to keep it going by supporting young musicians like myself.
I'll be applying to Berklee College of Music next semester. This would be a amazing opportunity for me to get my foot in the door, get heard, get known and learn about the school while doing so.
Thank you in advance for anything you can give, including advice!
It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While your first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
