The Fineshriber Family Foundation is granting $21,983 toward elementary music programs in CCUSD this school year. This generous donation will provide all the necessary funds for three instrumental workshops for third graders at each of the five elementary schools, focusing on the string, woodwind and brass families. The program combines the student’s musical knowledge with the actual experience of trying violin and cello in the strings workshop; trumpet and trombone in the brass workshop; and flute, clarinet, and alto sax in the woodwind workshop.
This Fineshriber Family Foundation grant will also fund nearly half of the second grade music program, which includes 28 weeks of music lesson plan delivery at the elementary schools along with a culminating assembly of student-created music. Additional funds for the 2nd grade music program were obtained from the California Arts Council, the LA Arts Commission, and Target.
