"A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream we dream together is reality"
The Del Couch Music Education Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non profit organization formed to provide our students with the opportunities to create and learn the art of music, record and listen to their musical creations and to provide a platform which they can enhance their musical , cultural , academic and life opportunities.
Focusing on our youth, but available to students of all ages, we are working with local schools and civic organizations to provide musical services that simply are not available or have been dramatically reduced in schools.
We provide instruments to students who have needs, music education to children and adults, internships in live sound setup, studio production and digital audio, (giving students " hands on" experience ). We also provide scholarships to local, state and national music schools and live performance opportunities. Students learn about the music business, how to copy write their songs, how to book a band, songwriting, arranging, music theory and the opportunity to record their own CD in a professional recording studio . Selected students are given the opportunity to record and perform with both local and national musicians. These students will have the opportunity to have their CD placed in the local Best Buy stores through our sponsorship with Best Buy. In addition, CD's are distributed on over 15 international web sites including I tunes.
Virtually everyday we come into contact with music. it has the become this powerful force that creates deep emotions in humans; music has the power to enrich our communities, inspire and cultivate creativity, critical thinking and self expression. Music teaches teamwork and provides an outlet for social change, and music empowers our youth to reach their full creative potential which positively influences their lives. Our Mission Statement We believe in the love of music and have a passion for sharing that love with our students. Those students who come to us share the passion, to express themselves, to be heard, to create, and sometimes just to sing out. It's a passion they will carry throughout their lives, regardless of whether they simply have a love of the art, or become highly successful int he business of music. They, in their own ways will share this passion all through their lives and will never forget the opportunities provided to them by this foundation- to listen to their own music, to hear their own voices, to record their own sounds and to pursue a dream.
