|From January 15028. 2018, music students will be invited to participate in a Practice-A-Thon fundraiser, organized by Thank You for the Music Society and the BC Registered Music Teachers’ Association. Participating students will collect pledges and commit to practice for a specific amount of time over the two week practice-a-then. The majority of money raised through the fundraiser will go to the Surrey School District, to support the purchase of new acoustic, hybrid and stage pianos.
As a teacher, I am thrilled to be sharing this opportunity with you and truly hope your family decides to participate. The Practice-A-Thon is a wonderful way to strengthen students’ practice habits, while also encouraging empathy and empowering them to make a difference in their community.
