Music is everywhere. Can you imagine a day without music? It's on the radio, in the movies, on your phone, at the bookstore, in the restaurant... It speaks when words fail. It connects all of the senses and employs so many different skills. It is physical, mental, and emotional. Every time I play I use the following skills: muscle memory, math, reading, listening, language, physical control.... Music can shape a society, it can help you learn the alphabet, and it can open up a bridge between your thoughts and how you express them to the world.
On top of all of this, private instruction opens up increased opportunities to learn. I am able to cater each and every lesson to the specific child I am teaching.
My name is Larissa Fall. I am a violinist, teacher, and arts administrator. I love music so much that I have spent my life learning it and now I teach it too
. Music is fun, but learning an instrument is expensive. This is why I am creating a 'Starting Student Scholarship Fund'. I would like to be able to give beginning students the opportunity to try a semester of private violin lessons for minimal to no cost.
$25 provides one child with one violin lesson. $500 provides an entire semester of lessons and 5 group classes. That is a total of 15.5 hours of instruction. My goal is to raise $2,500 to provide 5 students an opportunity to try out the violin for one semester.
All of the funds I receive will go towards the tuition of my students' private violin lessons. This includes instruction, rental fee for the studio space, piano accompanist fees, music materials/books, supplies, and a final recital event.
My Spring/Winter semester spans from January 9 - May 23rd, 2017 and any funds not used during this time will spill over for scholarship funds for Fall and Spring of 2017/2018.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on a written application process which includes a brief paragraph about why the scholarship funds are being requested.
For every $25 received, I will be posting a golden star (with your name as donor if desired) in my violin studio as a visual representation of your support. My students and I would be so grateful for any support raised by this scholarship fund.
