The Musicians Trust will provide youth from Intonation programs with one instrument package to own, including an amplifier for guitar or bass, cables, and other critical accessories. This also includes resources for care, repair, home practice routines, and private instruction. Consider it a scholarship for those who want to graduate from the part-time band experience to a full-time artistic practice.
Purpose and Goals
Having an instrument to call one’s own is a defining moment for every musician. The Musicians Trust provides students from Intonation programs with instrument packages and resources for care, repair, home practice routines, and private instruction.
Our goal is to provide instruments annually – keys, bass, and guitar – and track the progress of their owners. Another goal is to establish a network of dedicated, practicing youth musicians by sharing practice videos, sending invitations to Intonation events, and presenting awards to students the following year. We will also seek out additional resources to provide more types of instruments to more youth in the future.
Current Intonation band members are only eligible if:
– They have already completed at least one (1) year in Intonation programming.
– They maintain good attendance in band programs (past attendance will be reviewed during the application process).
– Every applicant is required to attend an online Info Session prior to submitting their application.
– In order to receive an instrument package, all participants in the Musicians Trust are required to attend at least the first three weeks of Learning Cohort lessons that cover instrument setup, care, and maintenance.
