Last week Ear Candy donated 40+ instruments which will help 12 different elementary schools in the Washington Elementary School District. Hundreds of kids in one of the largest districts in need will be impacted by Ear Candy’s efforts to save music education.
Kim Covington from 12 News covered the story as the School Solution of the week, check out the clip below which includes an interview with Jeffrey Stepian, a music educator at 3 of the schools affected by the donations:
The 3rd Friday of EVERY MONTH we showcase some of the valley’s most promising up and coming talent at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Phoenix. This Friday we have 4 amazing bands to impress the masses. Come support Ear Candy’s mission to save music education by rocking out. It’s only $10 and all proceeds go directly to the cause. Check out the line-up below.
If you came out to Hoodstock you were able to experience an awesome event and a perfect example of how area businesses, musicians, and activists can rally behind a single mission and make an impact. Check out the recap the crew at Hoodlum’s posted by clicking on the link above.
