BENEFITING: NEIGHBORHOOD STUDIOS OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY INC
Neighborhood Studios is a community school of the arts in Bridgeport, CT that provides arts education to children and youth regardless of their ability or background. We believe in the power of music education to enrich a child’s life. Studies have shown that learning to play a musical instrument will boost s child’s performance in school. Bridgeport has one of the highest achievement gaps in the country. Help us close that gap.
We had a "70's Show" concert on November 14 to raise funds to create young musicians! (Watch video in left panel.) We wanted to provide a course of 25 private lessons for 30 kids (cost $750/student), to learn piano, violin, cello, saxophone, or another instrument of their choice.
Our generous concertgoing donors pledged over $15,000, enough for 20 kids. Our goal now is to raise $7,500 more for the last 10 students. Learn more at http://nstudios.org/
