Even though the budget is tight, there is a music teacher in every school, although some are part-time positions. The Guild’s Mission Statement says, in part, that The Guild will further music education. Therefore, we supplement school music programs. The Guild’s Education Committee has several programs for schools and students. The Instrument Zoo, available in the schools to all fifth graders, provides children an opportunity to learn about musical instruments by holding and playing them. It’s wonderful to see the expressions on children’s faces when they make sounds with an instrument for the first, and possibly only time. In addition to schools, the Zoo is available at Family Concerts at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts, where many adults join in the fun. The Guild is proud to have received an award from the American Orchestra League on behalf of the Instrument Zoo program. Many talented music teachers want to put on special programs or purchase equipment not allowed by their budgets. With this in mind, The Guild created Harmony and Melody grants. All teachers, not just music teachers, in Northeast Florida are invited to apply for grants up to $500, which are awarded each year in December. From original musicals to drum and guitar groups, or start-up strings programs, we have seen some amazing results because of these grants. For many years The Guild has sponsored Performance Scholarships for members of the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra (JSYO). Winners are announced at the Major/ Minor Concert held each spring, when the JSYO performs with the entire Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. Listening to these talented and hardworking children gives us hope for the future of music performance. This past year, one of our members, Eleanor H. King, saw a financial need for children who wish to play in various JSYO programs. With this in mind, The Guild created the Eleanor H. King Tuition Scholarship. This first year, seven children were awarded the scholarship, which will help them to meet their tuition costs. The results of this scholarship will be seen for years to come. We applaud Eleanor King for her wisdom and foresight. Anyone wishing to contribute to this worthy cause, please call The Guild at (904) 358-1479.
