EAR CANDY CHARITY - Quartely Newsletter - Q3 - 2011

Summer is over, school is back in session, and it’s time to place hundreds of instruments and impact thousands of more youth!! Read below to get the full Earful on our development and please forward to your friends! And as always, keep a pulse on our constant stream of amazing updates on Facebook and Twitter!!


Backstage Class®

We have some exciting Backstage Classes lined up with major events for some very lucky students. From operating lights and sound, to marketing a show, to running the backstage these unique music field trips provide youth an opportunity to learn another side of music education. We encourage you to support the artists that are supporting the youth we serve by purchasing tickets to these AMAZING concerts!


BLUE OCTOBER @ Foundry on First – Thursday 9/8


RETURN TO FOREVER @ Mesa Arts Center – Saturday, 9/17


FALL FRENZY @ Tempe Beach Park – Friday, 9/30


Instrument Drive® Update

Ear Candy’s Instrument Drives® are still in full swing at participating Fire Stations in Avondale, Glendale, Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe. To locate the closet donation site to you and donate an instrument, please visit our website HERE.

Over the summer Ear Candy was busy collecting and preparing all of the instruments donated at Fire Stations across the Valley. With most of the repair work done, we are gearing up to place the instruments in local schools in the coming weeks. Music teachers interested in applying for instruments for their classrooms can do so HERE.

Thank you to everyone in the community who has donated an instrument in support of music education. We can’t wait to get this next batch of donated instruments into the hands of kids!!

Image: On a Friday afternoon a few weeks ago a handful of local guitar experts volunteered their time and expertise to repair and setup the guitars Ear Candy will place this fall!!


Employee Updates

Ian Feiler – Strategic Development Director
In July of 2011, Ear Candy’s fulltime staff grew from Founder and Executive Director, Nate Anderson, to include Ian Feiler, Ear Candy’s new Strategic Development Director. Ian received his master’s degree in Social Work from Arizona State University, where he studied nonprofit planning, administration and community practice. In addition to experience in the nonprofit sector with The Salvation Army and Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Office, Ian completed a 10 month Public Allies AmeriCorps term of service with at Ear Candy prior to being hired on.


Hanna Leister – Program & Volunteer Coordinator
Starting this month is Ear Candy’s newest team member, Hanna Leister from the ASU Public Ally program. Hanna graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University in 2010 with a BA in Theatre and a minor in Public Administration and Management. She has dabbled in all realms of theatre, serving on the governing board of the Prism Theatre, performing in many productions around the Valley, and serving as an Ensemble member at Space 55 Theatre. In her last year at ASU, she interned at the Arizona Commission on the Arts assisting with many special grant programs for non-profit arts organizations. Through this experience, Hanna gained a much broader perspective of how dire the need for arts education in Arizona has become. She is incredibly excited to be joining the Ear Candy team!


Getting Involved - Become a Roadie

We recently refined our Roadie (aka Volunteer) Structure and are engaging interested supporters in 3 distinct committees: Mission Development, Marketing, and Fundraising. To become a Roadie new members must attend one of two orientations held each month prior to volunteering (9/13 at 6PM or 9/24 at 11 AM) Each committee meets monthly and provides Roadies with fun and exciting opportunities to help with projects vital to Ear Candy’s mission.

Support Ear Candy in Placing Instruments & Expanding BackStage Class®

As a small organization, we rely on the financial support of individuals like you to impact the lives of children in our community. Since Ear Candy does not charge money for any of the services it provides, the only way we can continue to provide youth access to music education is through the donations of generous individuals like yourself.

Every child deserves access to music education!!


Thank YOU from all of us at Ear Candy Charity!!

With your support we will continue to Impact & Empower Youth through Music Education!!
