Recycle a Xmas tree or maybe a musical instrument

How about recycling an old musical instrument?............My wife and I recently were cleaning a closet and found an old clarinet from her youth. We set it out with the intent to find a new home for it, but never did. Over the holidays I stumbled upon a notice in the newspaper looking for used instruments to support music lessons for inner city youth. I called the number in the ad and was connected with Dick Ford at Signature Music in Syracuse. Dick has helped over 75 students since the programs inception in 2000. I had the pleasure of meeting Dick when I dropped off our clarinet donation last week. Dick is a passionate guy who had the vision and knowledge to put together this program for less fortunate inner-city kids. If you have an instrument or would like to learn more about this program, you can contact Signature Music at 315-478-7840.
