4/3/2019 News10 features Vanguard’s Popular Instruments for Students Program

 News10 featured the Vanguard Instruments for Students Program

On April 3rd, News10 broadcasted a feature interview about Vanguard’s Instruments for Students Program.

Jill Rifkin, our hardworking member who heads the program is being called a “Musical Fairy Godmother.”   She stresses the importance of giving the instruments to low income students. Because many schools lack a sufficient instrument supply, some students might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in music groups.

Educational studies show that grades and attendance often improve among these students as they experience the joy of playing music with their peers. Jill has already collected over 150 instruments to be distributed among these students.

Here is a link to the News10 broadcast:
