A letter from MusicLink Foundation

Read what Sue, coordinator with MusicLink Foundation, has to say:

Hi Dana,

I am a private piano teacher and needed a lead sheet to Happy Birthday. I googled it and up popped your site. What a find!

I'm sure many teachers from around the nation visit this site daily. Could I ask if you would consider something?

We help students who can't afford lessons

I am a coordinator with an organization called the MusicLink Foundation. We are a national non-profit that supports teachers who reduce their normal teaching fee by at least half to offer lessons to a student who would not otherwise be able to afford them because of financial need.

We help with costs & scholarships

We help with discounted music, practice instruments, reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses (not tuition) and Summer Music Camp Scholarships. Would you consider adding a link from your site to ours to spread the word about our program? You can check it out at:
