We started our season of giving really looking at how we could make a few of our lessons a little more accessible, so we started a WE PAY YOUR FEES program just for the month of November: If you signed up to take Violin, we would pay your fees through the end of the year! This gave some accessibility to our wonderful teachers and grew our string program!
Tamraloo Book Drive
When our little community realized that school was going to be very different from our normal routine, Tamraloo Studios started our tutoring branch to serve an education need apparent in our area. Now, with an in-depth literacy intervention program lead by MaryEllen Vogt. Ed.D, we have a deeper appreciation for literacy and first-hand experiences of how it can affect young minds in the best possible way. Much like music, there is science and data linking reading and literacy to success for all-ages, so we asked ourselves what else we could do for our community to promote positivity and success for our students. Our goal is to promote reading, literacy, and potentially provide books over the coming winter break when our students need a breather from their studies, social media, or video games. People are our first priority!
With your help, we collected gently used books for the month of November, sorted, and sent them to two non-profits!
The Foundry is a non-profit located moment from our downtown Lincoln location, and they are also doing wonderful things for our community. They provide free tutoring, wifi, and a safe place to study and hang out after school. When we reached out to ask if they needed any books, we got a resounding yes for gently used books for sixth to twelfth grade.
Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. is a national non-profit corporation founded in 1978 in the United States that is committed to serving the needs of all veterans. They are committed to taking any of the books that do not serve the Foundry and distributing them appropriately to ensure all your beloved books are going to a wonderful new home.
You asked and we listened! Sometimes spending just 30 minutes to an hour in the studio just isn't enough... you want to take Tamraloo with you! Between participants in our Covid friendly band night and some giveaways that happen on our social media, we have some Tamraloo swag out in our community so you can take us anywhere you are! If you are interested in winning some of these Tamraloo items, feel free to hop over to our Facebook and Instagram! We like to give things away to spread cheer in the community.
