BENEFITING: UNION COLONY CHILDRENS MUSIC ACADEMY
Jen Pastalo Dacpano
Inspired by TOMS shoes' founder Blake Mycoskie and the idea of One for One, I am setting out to give away guitar lessons to kids in my neighborhood. I own and teach for City Strings Guitar which provides group guitar lessons for after-school enrichment programs. I'm hoping that for every session of lessons purchased (which consists of 8-10 lessons), I can give a session away to a student who demonstrates financial need. Everyone should have access to music lessons if they want them, right? Well, here I am ready to pounce on the free lessons idea, but okay, most students would probably like to have a guitar in their hands while learning to play it. So the need arises for guitars.
