    This is our core activity at Brass For Children with many children coming from the community we work from. Mostly those coming from the poorest families to join the organization with Hope of a better future.

     

    √ The brass band has helped our children and youths to keep focused other than being idle.

    √ This brass band helps young and youths to learn musical instruments to build their talents.

    √ Some the children and youths have been able to earn scholarships in schools to play in school brass bands as they parsue their education.

    √ It is also hired to perform on functions like;weddings, parties among others.

     

    INSTRUMENTS DONATION

    APPEAL OF INSTRUMENTS FOR BFC MUSIC PROJECT

    Brass for children has placed several brass instruments into the hands of Underprivileged young people, but we are in need of more donated instruments in any condition.

    Our music and life skills programs have reached and aided over 50 beneficiaries among the impoverished children in our community.

     

    Our brass instruments are very few in number. You find one

    instrument is shared with more than five players and that most of our

    instruments are very old and out of tune.

    There are people with more than one instrument around the world. We

    share one instrument with more than five people.

    When you donate one instrument or more than one instrument there is

    hope that more members are recruited and are given the opportunity

    to play musical instruments.

    How you can help us in solving the problems of shortage of

    instruments and old, out of tune, scrap instruments?

    You can help us by collecting instruments from any Music institute,

    Brass instruments repair workshops, Band associations, music stores and Brass bands then ship ~them to us, to our postal address.

    An individual can also donate his or her instrument/instruments to us .

    Forming groups to raise funds for us to buy instruments

    Sending missing parts of instruments such as mouth pieces, drum

    heads and valves etc.

    MONTHLY DONATIONS 

    GIVES SECURITY TO BRASS FOR CHILDREN,

    SUPPORT OUR WORK BY GIVING MONTHLY DONATIONS.

    CHALLENGE
    Very many talented young musicians who are unable to afford the opportunity to learn and play music, to develop their skills , and to learn these skills for their own enjoyment and enjoyment of others e.g. Playing in church, rising costs make it even harder to find money for music lessons, So many talented young people especially less privileged children are unable to learn.

    We will appreciate you if you consider to donate, EVEN $ 5 will help us
     

    LONG-TERM IMPACT
    The long-term impact on these less privileged children is far greater than that of developing their musical skills,
    Research has shown that;
    1) Music facilitates in the learning of subjects & enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas .
    2) It helps them develop confidence, gives them meaning and may provide them with skills from which they can then earn a living in the future.
    The long-term impact is wider as they may then go on to train others.

    Thank you for generosity donations.
