The East Bay Center For The Performing Arts helps the educational
community met the challenges facing neighborhood children by providing
after-school and in-school programs, school site performances, curriculum
materials and professional development opportunities for artists and
The Stephen Stills Childrens Music Project has donated
thousands of dollars and a myriad of musical instruments to this Northern
California center. During a Crosby,
Stills, Nash and Young concert tour Stephen took time to visit this
extraordinary school. As he entered one of the music classrooms he was
mystified to discover the students music charts TAPED to the wall!
Hardly an optimum educational environment since the children could not
even face their instructor, the Childrens Music Project was easily
able to remedy the situation by immediately providing 50 sorely needed
music stands! Sometimes its just that simple. Also, congas donated
by Kaman Music and drum sets from Drum Workshop, Inc. allowed their
music percussion class to be heard loud and clear!
The Rosewood Avenue School with one of the Los Angeles Unified School
Districts most meager music program budgets is sorely lacking
the musical instruments needed for children who are anxious to learn
music but cannot provide instruments of their own. The CMP was able
to provide violins, including proper size violins for younger students,
clarinets, flutes and coronets to those enthusiastic students who would
otherwise be unable to participate in the music program at all!
The Hanalei School on Kauai, Hawaii lacked the funding
to provide music programs for the upcoming season. The Childrens
Music Project was able to assure the keyboard, percussion and culturally
integral ukulele programs were reestablished for the entire upcoming
school year. They are still in need of a sound system for the school
as well as funding and additional instruments. Please look around and
see how you might help.
