THE STORY:

Hey everyone!

My name is Zane Celmer and I'm 20 years old.  I am a Sophomore computer science major and I've been a runner for 7 years now.  This will be my first marathon, and I am super excited! 

Vandercook stood out to me because it is a college devoted to music education, and I think it is important for every child to be exposed to music from a young age.  

By donating, you are not only making it possible for me to run in the marathon, but you are helping make music education possible in schools everywhere.

*Founded in 1909, VanderCook is the only institution in the nation solely devoted to practical preparation of music teachers. 

*Offers bachelor's and master's degree in music education, as well as a master's degree program with certification.

*Is the alma mater of over 3,200 music teachers around the world.                        

*Offers year-round continuing education courses for music teachers of all grade levels.

*Remains at the center of the profession today, attracting over 15,000 music students and teachers to Chicago for clinics, classes, seminars, recitals and concerts.

*Instructs students to play, teach and repair all instruments found in the band and orchestra, plus piano, voice, guitar and conducting.  This ensures that every VanderCook graduate is ready to enter any music classroom and make an immediate impact.

*Within 6 months of completing their bachelor's degree, 90% of VanderCook graduates find teaching jobs, many of them in the Chicago metropolitan area.
