Double Your Money! Woot!
Oh my! I knew that there was community support for Flight Voice Studio. But this? I had no idea.
I have been approached by an anonymous donor who will match funds dollar for dollar up to $2k in support of Arts Education through Flight Voice Studio! We have just a few days to pull this off if we are to meet our Sept 1st deadline. Can you help?
25% of what you donate will go toward scholarship, the remainder establishes our nest egg for phase two - a downtown location in Fall of 2018!
There are new thank you perks (namely: discounts on Feldenkrais sessions with me at Body Song!) and some of the old perks are still available too (tasty tea anyone? discounts on lessons?)!
Any amount can be donated here and I'll send you an "I launched Flight Voice Studio" bumper sticker when they're ready. :)
Details of those thank you perks can be found below, but here's that button real quick:
The other really amazing thing that has happened since this crowdfunding campaign began, is what I have heard from the families and students I work with.
They tell me how much having a mentor in their child's life has meant to them.
How deeply impactful being heard is.
How joining the family we create with the Studio groups has given them an amazing sense of belonging and support.
They say really nice things about my teaching like:
“Sharon is more than an exemplary voice teacher: her deep wisdom, loving compassion and incredible empathy — not to mention her vast understanding of the body — combine to make her a unique Ithaca treasure.”
— Linda Glaser
“I call Sharon Costianes “the Voice Whisperer.” She so gently and adeptly brings out the best in each of her student’s singing abilities.”
— Alice Churchill
Your donation can help us share this incredible work with families who may need our help. I have one family waiting to hear about what funds are available. Let's give them good news! Talent and musical potential know no socio-economic bounds. The unfortunate reality is that the arts are seriously underfunded. It is up to us as a community to support Performing Arts Education. If you could take a moment to share this information within your circles, it would go a long way to help put the cherry on top and help support these kids. You can plant the seeds for success. We promise to nurture them and ensure they grow.
I promised I'd tell you about those perks, so here they are:
