Green Brooms Music Academy will host a $10 Music Lesson Day this Sunday, Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with all lesson proceeds going to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica’s Music Education Program.
The all-day event will give students the chance to take a 30-minute private or semi-private lesson with instruments ranging from cello to ukulele, and drums to mandolin. Additionally, Green Brooms has pledged a follow-up gift to the SMBGC: It will match the amount of the event’s proceeds with an in-kind donation of instructional materials and music education training.
“We have always had a high regard for the work of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica,” says Manuel Lozano, co-owner of Green Brooms. “The $10 lesson day is our way of giving back to a worthy organization and at the same time helping to encourage an interest in music education.”
Lozano expects the special event lesson day to sell out because it will draw students of all ages and experience levels.
The event will offer something for veterans and novices alike: a clarinet student might want to try her hand at guitar, for instance, while a musical beginner can finally take that long-postponed introduction to piano or voice.
The $10 30-minute private and semi-private lessons include piano, voice, guitar, violin, ukulele, bass, standup bass, flute, mandolin, drums, cello.
Space is limited; reservations required call 310.310.2623.
Green Brooms Music Academy is located at 1445 Sixth St. Santa Monica (between Broadway and Santa Monica Boulevard).
