Review for MusicLink Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have proudly been a MusicLink Foundation teacher for the past several years and so appreciate the dedication and foresight of the founders of this organization. Through the Foundation, I have taught many students who would not have been able to take piano lessons. This organization provides support, materials, instruments and self esteem to the students who are in the program. Our hope is for the continued success and leadership for this fine Foundation!!!

Review for MusicLink Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began teaching piano with the MusicLink Foundation several years ago and I continue to be amazed at the great satisfaction one gets from teaching someone who would not otherwise be able to pursue any kind of lessons in music. I love what I am able to do with this organization and am PROUD to be a part of such a foundation which affords the opportunities to study music. Thank you, MusicLink!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see more teachers realize the benefits and the great satisfaction to help the students.

Review for MusicLink Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am proud to be a MusicLink teacher. As a MusicLink Foundation teacher, I volunteer my time to teach students who cannot afford to pay for lessons. I currently have five students. It is so difficult to put into words the joy and satisfaction that I have experienced from my MusicLink students. They have added a new dimension to my studio that had not existed. In order to understand what I am saying, you need to experience it firsthand. One needs to step out in faith that your studio CAN exist successfully without the few dollars that you might be donating to kids in situations that make life really tough to be optimistic. The excitement of knowing you have been a part of these students' introduction to music is good enough for me. I want to pubicly also thank the many music and related companies for their generous contributions to the MusicLink students. You are a big part of why MusicLink is successful and I am hoping that your participation will continue. Thank you so very much. Try it, you'll like it!!!!

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

watching a family struggle through the aftermath of domestic abuse and MusicLink Foundation providing two students from that family with a keyboard that they could have never afforded to purchase. It has allowed this family to focus on music as a escape.

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

that earning big bucks for doing a service does not always reap the greatest rewards.

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

very dedicated to the mission statement of MusicLink Foundation.

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

Oh, my, let me count the ways. If someone was really interested in donating that kind of money, MusicLink students could realize dreams that they, thusfar, can only dream of. See me with a list of ideas.

Ways to make it better...

I had found and decided to participate earlier.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the numbers of students who live in families who are just on the brink of needing assistance with job cutbacks, job losses, etc.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
