“Thank you E•ƒ(ec)! Because of you, Red Sandstone Elementary students now have enough new 3/4 size guitars so that EVERY child has one to play for a more enriching music classroom experience. Brain studies have shown that children who study music have improved scores in both reading and math. Playing guitar builds a sense of community, feeds emotional wellbeing and provides a lifelong skill. Thank you to all of you who made this possible!”
