Jean Paul Richter said, “Music is the poetry of the air.” Indeed music is a part of all of our lives, and childhood instruction in music has been proven to support learning in other subjects and play a valuable role in the long-term success of students. Still, music education struggles to find funding and maintain its presence in school curriculums. If your camp is music-based or contains a music-related component and you’re looking for assistance in the upcoming season, you may be eligible for a grant from the rockin’ folks at The Fender Music Foundation.
Fender Music Foundation Helps Music Camps Play On
The Fender Music Foundation provides grants to US camps with music instruction programs for people of any age who would not otherwise have the opportunity to make music. The participants/students of your camp cannot be professional or career musicians and most of the grants awarded are for traditional instruments or equipment necessary to play them. Grants range in value from $500 to $5,000.
