We did it! We funded my Husting Studio Scholarship Fund in less than 2 weeks! I am so honored, humbled, thrilled, overwhelmed, and frankly, amazed by all the generosity and support my community has shown in helping me provide music lessons to underprivileged youth. Because we funded it within my goal time of 11 days, I’ll offer two students the opportunity to take lessons!
The campaign will remain live until the end of the month. Any additional donations will go toward additional materials for the students, or possibly toward organizing a studio recital.
My next step is to find candidates for the scholarship and then go through the hard process of choosing the best one! I’ll be emailing band directors at schools with a large population of children receiving the free or reduced lunch program and asking them to nominate students they feel would benefit from the experience. From there, the student will fill out my Scholarship Application and tell me a little bit about why they want lessons.
If you are a band director and you think you have a student who’d be a good fit for my studio, please contact me at lahusting AT gmail DOT com, or fill out the contact form.
Thanks again to all who participated. You have no idea how grateful I am that this was so well-received. I look forward to meeting my new student and getting started!
