Grand Piano desperately needed
Organized by: Dayvin Jacobowitz
June 08, 2016
Hello! I am the director of a growing piano studio. I have approximately 60 students that attend music classes, as well as group and private piano lessons. The center I teach out of is in desperate need of a piano. I currently use a set of keyboards for teaching, however it would be so helpful to the students to have a real piano to learn on and perform on at their recitals. The center I teach out of is called the Astoria Center of Israel, and has been very kind to me in offering a place to teach and run classes as I started and have grown my studio. I want the studio I run to donate a new piano in 2016 to give back to the center, and to give the community a place to have concerts and events that can benefit from a piano. As you may know, the arts programs within the public school system in the U.S.A. are dwindling. Many children never get the opportunity to learn music, especially since many music programs have been entirely cut from school curriculum. Music studios are becoming a large part of arts exposure, education, and opportunity for our youth. One piano can offer hundreds of children the exposure and opportunity to learn all about music. By learning music, children learn fine motor skills, problem solving skills, reading skills, math skills, history, and more. Children also gain self confidence, courage, and have a higher sense of self-worth. I would love to keep giving back to the community and the students. So please help me achieve my goal and gift a grand piano to the Astoria Center of Israel.
