Community members who attended the May 2010 Music Education Performance and Practice presented by Garden Valley School Music Director James DeFoe and his students know how much work has been done by everyone to progress with their instruments. They are all to be commended.
Yes, the voice is a beautiful instrument and DeFoe has each musician developing vocal skills but we can't buy them vocal instruments. What we can buy are the strings (especially cello and bass), trombones, baritones, tubas and concert percussion that they need.
If you have a used instrument or want to make a donation toward a new or used instrument, please contact James DeFoe at Garden Valley School, (208) 462-3756. Every donation will help obtain one more instrument for one more child.
