Central Music Academy Making a Difference In Kids' Lives

Do you have someone on your List who already has everything they need? 

Do you want to give a gift that will make a difference someone's life, in a meaningful way? 

Then I ask you to consider giving a gift to Central Music Academy on behalf of your friend or family -- or for yourself!

"Giving the Gift of Music in the Heart of Lexington"


There are numerous amazing stories of how lives of children are being changed by the music that the CMA provides. There are some 110 children that take lessons at the CMA.  From one of the founders comes this information: "We have had some incredible stories lately, of that moment when making music clicks for them. One of my favorites lately: a young man who has been taking cello lessons. A sister of his died tragically, and to deal with his emotions, etc, we heard that he spent the whole next day playing his cello. Pouring his heart into his instrument and his music. It clicked for him. Then on, he had a totally new approach to his music studies, and subsequently made the CKYO! The CMA makes a difference in kids lives; kids that don't have very much."

Also, CMA will have a booth at the Alternative Giving Fair this coming Sunday (Dec 11) at Central Christian Church.  The fair is full of items and opportunities to give to humanitarian and philanthropic efforts -- if you should be downtown Sunday morning, I encourage you to stop in the Fellowship Hall at Central and see what there is to buy.  Every gift that you purchase will benefit someone less fortunate...and in my view, that's what Christmas is all about!
