Help Blowcomotion Expand Its Music Program!

Blowcomotion is a Community Brass Band and Music Learning Workshop that welcomes adults of all musical abilities. We have built a team of professional music instructors  to teach adults how to play high and low brass, percussion, and woodwinds. Our students range from having never touched an instrument to musicians expanding their horizons by picking up new ones. 

To sustainably fund our instructional activities, provide loaner instruments, and present free public performances, we are seeking your contribution!

Paying our teachers alone costs Blowcomotion at least $8,000 per year. While we ask our students to donate what they can during rehearsal, to have them front the whole fee would be prohibitive for many learners. Help us keep our workshops as inclusive as possible, while paying our teachers a fair wage. 

Even $10 would be much appreciated, and even if you can't help us financially, sending this campaign to 5 of your friends or family members will help us get closer. 

Please spread the word, and feel free to join us on Tuesday's for sessions like the one below. 

This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
