MBS raised funds for this scholarship at our Bowling & Brews event.
MBS volunteers contacted Madison High School Music Departments for potential scholarship recipients. They eventually picked Anthony from East High, based on recommendations from the music director. The music director identified him as a student that was quite dedicated and could really benefit from additional guitar lessons.
Bill Roberts agreed to provide 14 half hour private lessons for Anthony (paid for by the profits from the bowling event.)
Anthony’s mother was very grateful for this opportunity for her son. Turns out they live so close that Anthony can probably walk over there.
Thank you to all the Bowling and Brews participants and especially to Bill Roberts for making this happen.
“The blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits. It’s better keeping the roots alive, because it means better fruits from now on. The blues are the roots of all American music. As long as American music survives, so will the blues.”~ Willie Dixon (1915–1992)
