November 2019

Bringing Music to Life has so much to be thankful for this holiday season - primarily our wonderful supporters in the Colorado community. Whether you donated an instrument, contributed to our repair fund, used your King Soopers Loyalty Card, donated a vehicle, or simply shared some good news you read in Quarter Notes , you helped make our goal of giving access to the life-changing experience of making music a reality for hundreds of Colorado students.

We thank you and wish you all healthy, happy and music-filled holidays!

A Kindred Spirit
Bringing Music to Life and Loveland Academy of Music share a passion for the social and academic benefits of music education. The Academy teaches over 1,500 voice and instrument lessons each month to learners of all ages and all abilities.

Director Karen Suedmeier founded Loveland Academy of Music 18 years ago to create a unique, personalized music experience based on joy, excellence, integrity, and relationship. She encourages her students to play what they love and love what they play!

Karen and her staff held a benefit concert for us this past spring and are supporting BMTL with a significant monthly financial contribution. We appreciate and applaud their generosity.
