The Conservatory of Piano takes pride in our long history of giving back to our community. We do our best to support our neighbors and teach our students to help others in situations very different from their own. Even in these uncertain times, our students and staff have been searching for a way to share our good fortune with those in need.
Here is what we came up with:
For every great lesson our students have, a pre-packaged sweet or dessert will be donated to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank by The Conservatory of Piano. It is a terrific way to reward our students’ hard work and positive choices as well as to create a little happiness in someone else’s life. The tasty treats that we will donate may be earned for terrific tasks like following directions, having our books prepared, practicing extra times, curving our fingers, being a great listener, counting out loud, and many, many others.
Stay tuned to our Facebook page for weekly updates on our progress and encourage your Conservatory Student to do their best work!
we often participate in toy drives for local charities…
