Busy Beaver Piano Camp and Happy Hands Watercolor Camps are slated to begin soon and we need sponsors for the event.

We are a for-profit music school, sole proprietor, providing lessons in the instruction of various musical instruments.  I would like you to be an important part of our plans to offer a music and art camp this summer.

The camp will run for six weeks, but the sessions run for one week, Monday through Friday from 9 am – 12 pm or 1 pm – 4 pm.  The music camp involves learning how to improvise and compose music and learning various art and design techniques.  Each week will feature a different genre, including pop, jazz, blues, classical, country, gospel/praise and worship.  The Destiny Children’s choir from Uganda will be visiting with us on July 20, 2015.  At that time, they will give a workshop on choral singing and African drumming.  They will then give a performance at night for the community.   We expect 200 children to be attending the camp and 200 guests for the performance.

The Happy Hands Watercolor Painting Camp will feature worshops in different aspects of art and design in addition to watercolor painting.  It will include Website Design, Video, Photography, and Book Writing and Illustration.

We would like your company to be a sponsor for our events and we would be grateful for your support.  I am promoting this in the local newspaper, flyers, and in the social networks.
We have three levels of sponsorship: 

Level 1 advertising -$2000 – Your logo and business name will be prominently displayed on our website and clothing.

Level 2 advertising – $1000 – Your logo and business name will be prominently displayed in smaller advertising on our clothing and programs.

Level 3 advertising - $500 – Your logo only will be displayed on our clothing.

Thank you for you kind consideration of this request.  If you would like to be a sponsor, please use the "Contact Me" form on this blog.

Programs with Children in Mind

It is no secret that Jesus enjoyed the children and made it clear that there were to be protected.  By reading about what he said about children, it is clear that he spent time with them, even though there are no accounts of the his activity with them.

However, they had a special place in his heart, because he says, “And who shall receive on such little child in my name receiveth me.  But, whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it would better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he would he were drowned in the depth of the sea,”  Matthew 18:5, 6.

No doubt, anyone who has a close relationship with Jesus would feel the same about children.  It is the ones who intend to do children harm that we have to be on guard for the sake of little children.  Jesus warned about them in these verses, also.

Children are too young and powerless to defend themselves against those who intend to do them harm.  Anyone who cares for them should do so with the utmost care and concern for them.  We read daily about countless numbers of individuals who abuse and neglect children.  Some go to jail for it and some go unnoticed. 

It is for this reason that I have carefully planned the programs for the RI Kids Create Music School so that children have activities that they can enjoy and that will enrich them for their future pursuits in college and for future employment.

For parents who would like to involve their children in music, it is advisable that they learn at an early age, six years old, if possible.  It takes many years to master a musical instrument and it takes careful sustained practice for the talent to develop.  Children have to be engaged in regular practice.

The should begin by learning how to care for a piano and then learning how to position the hands and strengthen the fingers in order to play the piano well.  When there is an interruption in the learning process, the child must revert back to previous  lessons and exercises in order to "catch up."  Things happen, and life gets in the way, but parents should be aware of the consequences when the child falls behind.  For, time does not wait for anyone.

Music, in particular, piano lessons, have been known to discipline children, and children who are disciplined are more willing to listen to and obey authority figures.   They have a better work ethic and take their commitments more responsibly. 

We, at the RI Kids Create Music  School are looking forward to working with your children.
