IMPACT OF MUSIC
David used it to calm the heart of King Saul. It was a signal of faith for Joshua and his troops after they marched around Jericho. And one day, it will mark the return of Jesus. Music has had an important role throughout history and it continues to impact stories today. Studies show that music programs help students develop self-confidence, self-discipline, ability to work with others, emotional intelligence, problem solving skills, and can stimulate healing from trauma.
CHCS MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAM IS REINSTATED
By offering classes such as choir, percussion, and drumline, our students will be able heal from life’s hurts while developing their God-given talents and character strengths. With the guidance and training offered at CHCS, we have watched students transform from voiceless children to confident young adults. We have witnessed students who were disconnected and lonely begin to develop strong, deep, family-like camaraderie with those around them..
MATCHING GRANT OPPORTUNITY
We’ve been presented with a generous dollar for dollar match. If we raise $60,000 before September 30, 2018, every dollar given will be matched. Thirty becomes sixty. Fifty becomes one hundred. That $60,000 becomes $120,000!
Please consider investing in this challenge that will help build the confidence, character, and talents of 24 students who are at-risk.
“What didn’t I get from drumline? Of course, I learned the fundamentals of drumming but I also discovered how to be a part of a family, not just a part of a group. I developed discipline through continual practice, patience through learning a new piece of music, and teamwork through putting all of our roles together to create one beautiful piece. I absolutely loved my time in drumline.”
