Give the Gift of Music to Under-Served Students

Jun 2, 2009

A student's appreciation

Below is a message from a student thanking The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation for the instruments that were donated to his school.

Over the past year we have helped over 4,050 students because of your support.

"My name is Guillermo A. Stentler and I would like to bring to your attention the thanks for the magnificent instruments you donated to my school, Esperanza Charter. I am in eighth grade and is trying my best to learn the bass, and I picked the bass because it is a beautiful and unique instrument that hardly nobody had interest in, but I did. So I would like to thank you not just for donating the instruments but donating something that has changed my life and has filled me with motivation and selfconfidence in my self, so thank you alot."

    akomei It's extremely good to hear every kind of instrument is being donated so that even the kinds that may not appeal to most students will be picked up by those few who do have the passion for them.
