Education Through Music just announced a new partnership with Grain Audio to support music education in inner-city schools, with a plan of action that looks to the future of arts education in NYC. Just in time for the holidays, the two are teaming up to offer a special gift any music lover would be happy to add to their wishlist: the Grain Audio HANDHeld PWS. For each wireless speaker sold to an ETM supporter, Grain Audio will make a contribution of $68 to Education Through Music; so whenever someone purchases a gift for a loved one (or themselves) they are also giving the gift of music to a child in need!
To order the Grain Audio HANDheld wireless speaker in support of Education Through Music, visit: http://www.grainaudio.com/ETM or http://www.etmonline.org/store (*Only the PWS speakers sold through this page will qualify and count towards the charitable donations*)
In addition to the holiday gift that keeps on giving music, GrainAudio will provide audio equipment support to ETM partner schools and host several special events in 2014 to help raise funds for ETM. Grain Audio will also provide additional marketing support to help increase ETM’s reach and exposure to new audiences and supporters.
“We are honored to be partnering with ETM. The incredible work they are doing touching children’s lives through music is both inspiring and result oriented,” said Mitch Wenger, President of Grain Audio. “They have a real impact and are truly doing incredible work. Grain Audio is thrilled to be partnering with this amazing organization.”
