Never work just for money or for power. They won't save your soul or help you sleep at night. ~Marian Wright Edelman

The Academy of Music for the Blind is a non profit 501(c)3 - the only school in North America that specifically addresses the needs of blind and autistic musicians and performing artists. I serve on its Board and volunteer there teaching Drama and Voice & Movement.
Every year dozens of blind musicians inquire about enrollment at our Academy, but because of low donations and recent federal/state budgetary cuts we simply don't have the funding to support them.
If you have an interest in the arts and would like to donate to the Academy's scholarship fund, I'd be grateful for the assistance.
