Hi. My name is Matt, I own and operate Mako Music, a Music School in Mechanicsville, Virginia, that not only teaches music, but has camps, and most importantly, has created a culture of acceptance, family, encouragement, and togetherness among our students.  We believe every kid has a right to pursue their musical interests regardless of income.  In the past, I have made up the difference financially in sending kids to out of state camps, discounting lessons, and discounting and free camps of our own.
In the interest of us being able to continue our work and do so for as long as possible, I am attempting to find other means of supporting these outreach programs as part of a larger program to expose music lessons and camps to as many as possible while maintaining our ability to continue this business which has changed many lives for the better.

Funds for this campaign will go to:
$ 1,000 Winner of Mako Scholorship 2016 to attend Wooten Woods Music Camp Jr.
$1,000 Winner of Mako Scholorship 2017 to attend Wooten Woods Music Camp Jr.
$2,500 for discounted and free lessons for kids unable to afford lessons.
$5.000 for free and discounted sponsorships to the Mako Summer Camps.
$1,000 for equipment costs. 

We have had some very successful summer camp programs here full of students, and many were given free or discounted lessons which caused our summer camps to operate at almost a lost the last three summers
We have had some great students take advantage of free and discounted lessons, and we will always continue the work of allowing kids who cannot afford lessons or camps to attend, we are hoping for some help in doing so so that Mako can continue this work for as long as possible.

Thank You

Matt Koon

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED!
Today Mako Music paid $2,000 for our 2016 scholarship winner Jessica Williams to attend, and our 2017 Scholarship winner Aric, to attend. We have raised $840.00, so we almost have HALF of the scholarship component covered. Please consider donating so we can cover the rest of the expense as well as travel expenses to get these deserving kids to Wooten Woods! Thank You!!
