You're Invited to Keep Music Alive @ Home!
Dear Supporter,

While my family and I are staying-at-home during this pandemic, we have been rediscovering the joy and fun of music together.

We've started a family band and have been holding daily jam sessions. And we've also been busy using KO@Home – Kids’ Orchestra’s new virtual learning program.

Thanks to KO@Home , my daughter, Julia now has the opportunity to continue studying the violin by watching videos made by her teacher, Ms. Rachel.

Not only does Julia get the chance to reconnect with her teacher, but both her and my son, Logan can use KO@Home’s Lagniappe Resources during their homeschool days. It’s truly a win-win for us all.

Music is incredibly important during these uncertain times and together we can keep it alive at home with KO@Home . Please join me in using these fun resources with your family.

I wish you and your family a wonderful music-making experience.

Stay safe and stay well.
