BENEFITING: HOUSTON AREA SUZUKI STRINGS ASSOCIATION
This is a fundraiser to provide scholarships for children of low-income families in the Houston area to attend summer music camps.
Houston Area Suzuki Strings Association was founded in 1991 and incorporated in 1993. HASSA offers several educational events for Suzuki Method string instrument students in the Houston area, as well as scholarships for students to attend Suzuki Summer Institutes (read more about those). Attending a Suzuki Institute is an incredible educational experience for a young music student.
Typically HASSA is able to offer a few partial scholarships per year, helping students whose families can make up the difference out of their own pockets. In the past few years, the need in our area has outgrown our capacity to fulfill it.
100% of scholarship money you donate will be paid directly to a Suzuki Summer Institute (not affiliated with HASSA) on behalf of the scholarship recipients. Recipients will be chosen by a committee of HASSA member teachers. Criteria considered include financial need, student essay, and audition video.
