Review for Foundation To Assist Young Musicians (FAYM), Las Vegas, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Krzysztof Rucinski and I have had the great honour and privilage to be the very first protege of FAYM, who has not only been invited to give the first recitals and concerts that launched the foundation, but also have been given the wonderful chance to grow as a musician under the guidance of the top music teachers like Oleh Krysa, Cyrus Forough, Zvi Zetling and the Ying Quartet at one of the best music schools - the Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester. This would have never been possible to me, if Maestro Harold Weller hadn’t given me a helping hand in 2007. After having listened to my recordings, learning about my difficult financial situation and inviting me to concerts in December 2007, Maestro Weller has offered me FAYM’s incredible financial support and what most has been standing by me for all the days since then giving constant support and encouragement, what I appreciate and value so much. I am really grateful to Maestro Weller, the Committee members and all the FAYM collaborators and supporters for the GREAT chance I was given. I watch and admire how the Foundation is growing and expanding. It's great to see that FAYM takes care of more and more talented kids and young musicians from needy families. There are many foundations that help the talented ones, but FAYM’s support goes in the hands of the ones who really need it. Please help, the Foundation to grow. There are so many others who even don’t dare to dream of such support!

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

changing of my life and enabling me to study music with the renowned teachers at the prestigous Eastman School of Music in the USA. Playing my first concerts with an orchestra and giving four recitals launching the Foundation to Assist Young Musicians.

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

the constant warm encouragment and help from the Trustee of the Foundation Maestro Harold Weller and other kind collaborators and supporters of the Foundation.I'm also very happy that FAYM made my dreams come true!

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

Maestro Harold Weller, the Founder and Trustee of the Foundation, the members of FAYM Advisory Committee: Luana DeVol, Marilyn and Rodney LaRocque, Dr. Roman Rozycki and many many others

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

help many other talented musicians and talented young kids.
