malden, ma – Thanks to your donations this week, Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation donated guitar strings and capos at Linden School!
These critically essential music supplies will be used to help students learn more songs in difficult keys, and of course, replace strings that have been worn or broken altogether.
Mr. Gesualdo explains, “By the end of the school year I’d like my students to be able to play several songs on the guitar – songs that use both open strings and capos. It is amazing to see and hear kids making music! The students in our school are active makers of music, but we have have little to no funding! The children never complain about what we don’t have and make the best of the situation.”
Linden is a STEAM academy in an urban gateway city, and we need to build up the “A” for “Arts” in this STEAM school!
If you are unfamiliar with our STEM to STEAM advocacy click here to learn more about incorporating “Arts” into the “Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics” curriculum.
Due to budget constraints it is difficult for the school department to allocate any money to music and art classes in the city.
As a result of the patronage and kindness of our donors, we funded this music project with the help of the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation and DonorsChoose.org!
