Radford University Music Therapy Instrument Drive: Motivating Adolescents with Music
Are there instruments in your home stuffed in a closet collecting dust? Would you like to see those instruments put to good use by helping children and adults in the community? Would you like to receive tax credit for your donation? If the answer is “yes” to these questions please consider donating your used instruments to the Radford University Music Therapy Program.
During the month of November the music therapy program at Radford University along with the Radford University Foundation is having an instrument drive. We are looking for new/used electric guitars, basses, keyboards and drum sets to add to our growing instrument closet. The music therapy program is ever expanding and to meet the needs of the students and the community we serve, the music therapy program is looking to diversify instruments that are available for music therapy programs.
An immediate benefit from your donation will be a music therapy program that is aimed at adolescents that have been identified as at risk. By donating these instruments a new program will be implemented to assist these adolescents to achieve greater success in school; not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well. This program will strive to create a performing ensemble using the donated instruments and through active music making experiences, the adolescents will move towards greater success in all aspect of their lives.
The Radford University Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and a separate and autonomous organization from Radford University. As a non-profit, it is concerned in large part with administrating funds to Radford University students for academic projects.
Instrument donations can be dropped off at the Radford University Music Department office in Covington Hall 103, Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm. You may also drop materials off in Roanoke at MusicVisions, LLC, 20 Walnut Ave, Roanoke, VA 24016. That Roanoke drop-off would need to be arranged by emailing Jim Borling at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling at 540-797-3753.
For any questions please email email@example.com or call 540-352-8258.
