Give these Lennox Middle School sixth graders the performance opportunity of the year, "from Beethoven to The Beatles"!
In December 2011, after only two months of study on their instruments, students performed a mid-year recital in front of a packed auditorium of families, friends, and supporters. For the spring semester 2012, Music Mentors students have studied musical masterpieces "from Beethoven to The Beatles." You can help these students end the year on a high note by supporting the end-year recital on May 22nd!

Building on the YMF Mentor Artists Program that was started in 1994, YMF launched a new Music Mentors Program in Fall 2011. A unique music education program that builds on children’s prior knowledge and musical experiences, the program extends the YMF mission of supporting young musicians in Lennox, an underserved and economically distressed unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. Specifically, the 6th grade middle school in the Lennox School District currently has no in-school music education. Since parents do not have the financial resources to fund music education, the Music Mentors program opens a new world of music to students by providing instrumental music instruction, music appreciation and fundamentals as well as field trips to orchestra concerts.
Students volunteered as ushers for the March 25 YMF Debut Orchestra concert.
Your donation is greatly appreciated and will help cover the cost of instrument maintenance and repairs as well as refreshments for the dress rehearsal and final performance. Donations are wholly tax deductible due to our non-profit, tax-exempt status under state guideline 501 (c) (3).
YMF, the Music Mentors, and especially the many talented students thank you for giving the gift of music!
