Music takes you places

Thank you for supporting the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music
“Music takes you places.”
A phrase that certainly comes to mind when you think of Javon. While Javon was always interested in music, he didn’t have music education available to him. Now, thanks to WCM programs, he’s a thriving young musician. Blind since birth, Javon experiences the world through sound and touch, and his fascination with how instruments produce sound continues to grow.
This fall, a scholarship allowed Javon to begin one-on-one lessons with WCM teaching artist Mitch Shiner, the same teacher who brought the joy of music to Javon’s class at Gaenslen School last year. Now a freshman at Rufus King, Javon participates in the drum line, and has had the chance to make new friends through music.
This would not have been possible without support from community members like you.
You know what music can do. Make you gift today to help WCM continue giving the future leaders of our community the transformative power of music.
Yes – I will play it forward!

“Sometimes music cheers me up. It motivates me when I’m playing the right beat.”
