Music lessons have been scientifically proven to help with knowledge retention, improve grades, promote self-discipline and self-confidence, to improve dyslexia and so much more. Unfortunately, music and art programs have been removed from many schools, meaning that children can only access these benefits through private lessons, which often cost more than their family can afford. The OWN music scholarship was created to help financially disadvantaged children to get the benefits associated with taking music lesson. Donations to the OWN musical scholarship are welcome; especially electric keyboards. Donations should be taken to Sue and Jerry’s Trading Post in Oracle.
