If you believe in music in the same way Simple Gifts does, please donate. Any amount can change a kid's life, and will be truly appreciated.
How to give an instrument
If you have an instrument sitting in the back of the closed or in a box in the garage, why not put it to use. Donate your instrument to Simple Gifts. You can track which student will receive your gift, and how they progress as a musician and student.
High School Students...
If you already do teach, I know the salary is great...and the money is useful. But just think about giving a portion of each lesson's pay to support the cause. It could be just $2 for every lesson you teach, or 5% of your weekly salary. If you want to become a Simple Gift staff, please contact me.
If you are a high school musician, and you want to start giving a little bit of time each week and teach lessons, I would be happy to help you get started. First, contact your local middle schools band directors and begin by introducing yourself. Tell them who you are, where you go to school, what your qualifications are, and for what reason you want to teach lessons. Then, ask them to promote your name to their students and maybe meet them in person to have a chat. If you have any questions, again...I'm right here :)
