BACK TO SCHOOL - 2019-2020 IS THE MOST AMBITIOUS YEAR YET FOR GRACE NOTES MUSIC FOUNDATION
Grace Notes Foundation is seeing amazing growth and continues to reach more students with music education programs and scholarships. The Foundation's growth would not be possible without the investment of generous donors. Support from music lovers are making a difference in their lives.

Record Number of Makayla Joy Sitton Scholars for 2019-2020. Grace Notes is providing 19 ( the highest number ever) Makayla Joy Sitton music scholars. These 19 scholarships provide individual, private music lessons during the 2019-2020 school year. These scholarships are awarded to students in elementary, middle and high school based on financial need and a rigorous application process.

Partnership with the El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center is growing! Music Classes were conducted February – May 2019 for young children at El Sol on Saturday mornings, while their parents were in parenting classes. At El Sol Summer Camp (2019), Grace Notes teachers and Teen Team volunteers provided a weekly music lesson to 18 campers and taught ukulele lessons.

There is great support for Artist in Residence at UB Kinsey Elementary School of the Arts. Grace Notes will fund an “Artist-in-Residence” violin teacher for the 2019-2020 school year for the U.B Kinsey Elementary school in West Palm Beach.

Grace Notes Sends Eight Students to Summer Music Camp. Summer camp is such an important time for growing musicians. Eight students were awarded scholarships for 2019 summer band and orchestra camps. One of Grace Notes Foundation's summer scholars won the Outstanding Camper Award at the Palm Beach County Band Camp.  

Our Grace Notes Teen Team continues to grow. It is comprised of middle and high school students. This fine group of young people has been instrumental in helping with community outreach at El Sol, fundraising events, and performances at retirement homes in our community.

The Instrument Assistance Grants helped purchase professional instruments for advanced students whose families could not afford them and also. In 2019, Grace Notes provided matching grants for a trumpet and a violin. Thanks to support from Extraordinary Charities, Grace Notes was also able to provide ukuleles for children at El Sol.

PRIVATE AND CORPORATE CONTRIBUTIONS MAKE OUTREACH PROGRAMS!
