3 Strings Guitars Southwest High School

Want to join me in making a difference? I am  raising money to benefit Southwest High School 3 String Band.  They were chosen to perform at the National Association of Music Education National Convention in Orlando, Florida this November out of more than 385 applicants.  The 3 Strings will perform at the Key Note Address as the featured ensemble demonstrating innovative music education regarding inclusion.  The methodology created by Director, Ruth LeMay and Special Education Assistant Artisha Knight, is title UnLocKed  and will be available to music educators attending the conference in hopes that they will  CREATE their own 3 string program at home.  Three Strings began at SWHS in the winter of 2015 as a pilot project for students with special needs to be included in guitar education.  Ruth and Artisha were astonished at the music these young people created and they have been stunning audiences ever since.  Your donations will help take 49 people, 19 with special needs, parents, staffing and support students. 3 String Band will also be performing at area local public schools, take in Disney and travel to the ocean.  Please know that  any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this 3 String Band adventure as we set off to change the world!
