Students in the Melody Payne Piano Studio recently participated in an effort to raise money for victims of the devastating flood that destroyed so many homes in Louisiana in August 2016, and we'd love for your students to join us, whether to raise money for Louisiana, North Carolina, or for victims of another disaster.
My piano students and I held a “Practice-A-Thon” throughout the month of September to raise donations to send to a special family in Louisiana. Students kept track of their piano practice minutes each day, and they asked friends and family to sponsor them for each minute they practiced. Friends and family could pledge a flat donation if they chose, instead of pledging by the minute.
Students kept track of the donations and practice minutes, and after we collected all of the donations throughout the first weeks October, my studio of 11 students had raised $1500!
My student's grandparents on both sides of the family lost their homes, vehicles, and most of their belongings to the flood. Their homes had approximately five feet of water, and many of their belongings could not be salvaged. They need financial help rebuilding their homes and lives.
This download includes my studio's personalized Practice-A-Thon information, plus a generic version that you can personalize for your own studio.
