Dream With Me Foundation provides grants and scholarships to individuals with a passion to pursue instrumental and vocal performance education. A homespun philosophy of "Inspiring those who dare to dream," is the driving force behind this boutique non-profit organization.
Music offers the ability to cultivate our feelings and thoughts through nonverbal means and to respond to these nonverbal thoughts in others.
When a child learns to analyze musical work from all perspetives or to improvise within a certain musical style, both inductive and deductive reasoning grows stronger.
Learning to perceive and derive meaning from musical sounds sharpens your child's ability to comprehend abstract theory.
Since receiving the award, I have attended a two-week marimba festival over the summer break in Arcata, CA and performed in a showcase concert last August in Orlando, Florida for the General Assembly from Disciples of Christ. I've been accepted into the Masters Program for Marimba at Boston Conservatory. I'm very grateful that DWMF helped me enormously with the scholarship award, and it has been a great encouragement for me to continue pursuing a marimba solo career.
Humbled still by the generosity of the Dream With Me Foundation, this scholarship has allowed me to take a step closer to graduating with a Jazz Composition degree in Austria. Honestly, I'm still in awe and a bit surprised every time I look back at my musical life adventures knowing that it was made possible with the help of many wonderful people that still believe in my story. Thank you Dream With Me Foundation for helping me through this journey!
