Many thanks to Mr. Weller for recognizing and supporting the hard work and dedication that our son Liam has invested in becoming a violinist. Mr. Weller and FAYM have graciously offered to help support Liam as he begins his studies at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music this fall. Thank you, Mr. Weller, and FAYM, for all that you have done for the community of Las Vegas and for our young musicians.

It's about so much more than learning a musical instrument. It's about giving kids a chance to see themselves as worthy, capable and beautiful -- and that in turn helps them become the wise, compassionate citizens of tomorrow who will make this world a better place.

Thanks to Hal Weller and The Foundation to Assist Young Musicians ("FAYM") my cousin, Anthony Trionfo, is now attending the world's first and foremost fine arts boarding high school INTERLOCHEN ARTS ACADEMY: www.academy.interlochen.org



Hal & FAYM along with their most generous resources were Anthony's champions in securing the largest scholarship awarded in Interlochen's history. They continue to support him with funding for the balance of his tuition as well as offering guidance to Anthony as realizes his potential and the opportunity afforded him in his new environment.



Anthony has thrived at Interlochen. He is a 15 year old flutist and after only 2 months at the school he was declared the winner of its prestigious Concerto Competition. This is the TOP performance honor awarded by the school and this means that Anthony has been recognized as the best of the best on a worldwide scale.



The mission statement of FAYM is to "encourage and support gifted young musicians in early training, advanced study, and professional career development, specifically those who are in need of financial and/or mentoring support."



FAYM is succeeding in fulfilling its mission.

Anthony would not have been in this most incredible position without Hal Weller and FAYM. Our family is eternally grateful and hope others will help support the foundation and its work.



Sincerely

Valerie Trionfo

My experience with FAYM is not at breadth, but lies within the dedication and passion of one meeting with Hal Weller, who was willing to take time out of his busy schedule to tell MWR Project Inc about his program to help young musicians and explore opportunities to help each other. The Facebook groups' population, which I understand is only a portion of FAYM's total patrons, is more of the testament to his devotion and persistence for a cause that he has worked successfully to develop and continues to support - so I support FAYM!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching FAYM's Facebook campaign grow and be a well-loved non-profit

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the openness and willingness of communication on the decision-making level of the organization's key staff

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Hal Weller

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

enroll many more young musicians and promote the arts in more communities around Nevada and the world
