On Friday, December 14, from 10:20 am – 2:20 pm, Conservatory Lab’s seventh grade students will truly become the teachers and channel their music skills into global action. They will be offering music lessons to raise funds for Water For South Sudan, a nonprofit organization founded by Salva Dut, one of the central figures in Linda Sue Park’s A Long Walk to Water. After reading this book, students felt compelled to take action and set a collective goal to raise $1,000 through these music lessons. This money will help to drill boreholes and water pipes in remote villages in South Sudan, just like the one where Salva grew up.
Let our students tell you all about it!
Want to know more?
Here’s how the music lessons will work: on December 14, seventh grade students will be stationed at the upper school (2120 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester, MA), in private music rooms and classrooms, ready to teach 20-minute introductory music lesson for a $10 minimum donation, which they will accept either in cash or online.
Seventh graders will be awaiting their students’ arrival in room B13 to collect their donation and assign them a music instructor. People of all ages are welcome to come and take a lesson anytime between 10:20 am and 2:20 pm. No appointments or sign ups are necessary–just come on by anytime within that window! Students will offer lessons in string, percussion, and wind instruments. We hope you can make it!
Or donate online!
If you can’t join us on December 14 and still want to support our seventh graders’ fundraising work for Water for South Sudan, we encourage you to make an online donation to our class fundraising site.
Here’s a flyer to share. Please let your friends and family know so they can visit, learn music, and help us reach our goal.
Thank you for your support!
