College

An exciting opportunity has presented itself for Strings With Wings on the Gulf Coast. Nothing is official yet, I will keep an update and make an announcement of facebook when I can. :)

So, I am not sure if many of you know or not but I am about to leave for college!! I move in on August 14th and will be attending the University of Southern Mississippi. Go Eagles!!
I hope everyone has had a laid back summer as I know that the school year gets crazy busy for us students as well as the adults.

I have made a twitter account for SWW you can follow us at www.twitter.com/stringsww <-(it would not let me write our whole name so I tried coming up with something that wasnt too confusing, let me know if you have any problems.)

Well I wanted to make sure I posted something before my life got crazy busy again lol. I will try my best to keep up with the blog...bye!

Mexico Summer Trip

With everything going on with the drug cartels on the U.S/Mexico border we are having to post-pone our summer trip down to Saltillo, MX.

However, we are looking at going down maybe sometime during Christmas or this fall of 2009.

At our last meeting we have decided to start a new program called a

Sponsor-a-Musician
This program is when a family or corporation adopts a child in our music program in Mexico. Your monthly payment will go toward his/her private lessons as well as saving money for the child to come to the United States to study violin. We have decided to take the top 5 students who are older than 12 years old. We will host them in homes on the gulf coast.

If you have any questions or if your interested in helping us please leave a comment or e-mail me.

I will keep you updated
