Ongoing Lessons + 22 New Donations in 22 States

As COVID-19 related restrictions continue to evolve, Can'd Aid's virtual lesson program offers a steady source of music education and personalized attention to underserved music students cities across the U.S. In addition to virtual lessons, Can'd Aid finished out the end of the year by fulfilling the instrument and equipment requests of 22 public school teachers in 22 individual states - on just one day. 

Bevin Foley, TUNES Ambassador and violinist with Trout Steak Revival just began a third round of lessons with violin students from Central Music Academy - even putting on a "virtual recital" to which parents/guardians were invited to attend. Eight keyboards and stands were donated to Music Education & Performing Artists Association (MEPAA), and Abby Bryant of Downtown Abby & The Echoes starts a brand new five-lesson series with these students starting Sunday 1/17/21. Currently - a series of stand up bass lessons are in the work, and Can'd Aid is in the process of launching virtual guitar lessons with an organization out of Colorado.

In December, Can'd Aid decided to spread a little extra holiday cheer in the form of drums, chimes, records, guitars, ukuleles and more.  Utilizing the platform, Donors Choose, where public school programs list their music program needs, seeking donations of any size - Can'd Aid fulfilled the requests of 22 public school music programs nationwide. 

As musicians continue navigating this abruptly-altered and evolving industry - our virtual lesson program is growing to forming more mutually beneficial partnerships for TUNES Ambassadors and organizations in need. $1,500 stipend for each series of five lessons in order to support them during this challenging time.

To all of those who have donated to this campaign, thank you. Since publicizing this campaign, your donations have helped Can'd Aid to launch a brand new program to adapt to evoling needs, donate 721 instruments in 2020, and offer 30 music lessons to children in need.
