With the delivery this morning (August 30th) of four musical instruments:

  • a French horn to Shoreline Public Schools and
  • two violins and a French horn to Everett Public Schools

Music4Life has delivered 286 ready-to-play instruments since Sept. 1, 2016 to our participating schools/school districts and doubled its productivity from last year (2015-2016).

When asked how that can happen, all we can say is:

  • We benefited from new ads that began appearing in Encore Media Group publications (Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, Pacific NW Ballet and about a dozen others) starting February
  • We added a new program, Everett Public Schools, that has a very active Booster Club and received at least 90 of those 286 instruments
  • We benefited from some management changes that clarified and simplified our processes
