You can do something wonderful in the next 3 minutes!
You can help give this hands-on musical experience to kids.
All kids deserve hands-on musical experience in school. But when schools face budget cuts, the opportunities can disappear. Holly's Harps is an award-winning program bringing hands-on music experiences for all kids in a school, regardless of the financial situation of their family or their school.
You remember how much hands-on musical participation meant to you in school. You already know the incredible joy of simply making music with real instruments. You already know that music learning contributes to kids' abilities across the academic curriculum and in the social environment. You know this because you experienced it as a child. You value the same hands-on musical opportunities for children today.
You can help sponsor a program. You can even request a program at a specific school or other location! Every child attends multiple sessions. Every child plays songs on a real harp, right in their own school. No extra driving for parents. No extra fees for families.
The curriculum meets state standards in music, science, math, social studies, and language arts. Students learn with real harps in their hands.
