The Joy of Music School, a nonprofit organization, provides free music lessons and instruments to hundreds of disadvantaged, at-risk Knoxville area kids each year. All individual lessons teachers are volunteers. Our kids come to us because they can’t afford private lessons, instruments, and music. We’ve been around since 1998.
In addition to our kids who are pianists, singers, and trumpet players, a lot of our children and teens are playing guitars, violins, cellos, and other stringed instruments. That adds up to a lot of strings.
Strings wear out. We must replace them constantly. That’s where you come in.
Here’s a crazy idea… We’d like to replace ALL THE STRINGS—yes, all 278 strings on all those kids’ instruments (we did the math)—in time for the kids perform on their spring recital. But with spring right around the corner, we need your help to pull it off. We aim to get this done in February. Before spring springs!
Do your part to help our string kids before spring. They need STRINGS FOR SPRING!
Buy a string for a Jacob’s guitar. For Maya’s violin. For Tabitha’s cello. Soren’s and Aliyah’s ukuleles!
It couldn’t’ be easier.
Ten dollars buys one string.
Simply text JOM to 20222 and you’ve paid for a string! The $10 is added to your mobile phone bill, and the Joy of Music School receives 100% of the money.
Then the kids will have strings for spring!
Guitars need six strings. Violins (fiddles for all y’all fiddlers) need four. And so on. You could pay for one string per day until you’ve filled your fill of guitars, cellos and so on. Or just get one and you’re done.
BE WARNED… This opportunity to give via text comes to screeching halt February 28.
