When Valotta Music Studio’s owner, Nadine Valotta-Badasarian, heard about SWAN’s mission and the vulnerable children we serve, she saw an opportunity to teach life skills to her music students. In doing so, she taught them how to be heroes.

Each Valotta student was taught how to give a home recital for the purpose of raising funds for SWAN. The children learned their music and invited relatives and friends to their homes. They faced their fears and performed. Twelve children participated in the challenge and raised over $550.

Here is what Sam had to say about his SWAN Concert Challenge, “I was very nervous to play in front of a group of people but I didn’t care because I knew it would help other kids get music lessons like I do.

Share on Facebook how you are getting involved and making a difference for SWAN students and we may spotlight you here!
