“The music program at Mae Hensley is growing every year. The students in band right now have been doing their best to play on some old and broken instruments. I am looking forward to putting these new instruments in the kids’ hands and seeing their faces light up when they can make an easy beautiful tone! The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation is not just giving us new instruments; they are giving us a greater sense of pride, school spirit, and purpose for our band program. Thank you for this amazing gift!” Aimee Hirsch, Music Teacher, Mae Hensley Junior High, Ceres CA
You make this possible – without you, teachers like Mrs. Hirsch and their students would not have the wonderful opportunity to experience their personal best, complete with music education.
Having the chance to play an instrument in school is only part of what your support provides for young people. You add joy to their lives, help them be better students, give them confidence and a voice. This gift will have lasting effects.
Thank you for your very generous gift to The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation in honor of NPA’s Musical Instrument Gift Day and for opening up opportunities to kids through music. It has been an honor working with your organization.
We appreciate your continuing support and we look forward to updating you about our work and how together, we are keeping music alive in our schools.
