There have been some big natural disasters in the US in 2017, and a lot of people's lives have been negatively impacted. If you are like me, you've made a donation to the Red Cross or another organization to help with general recovery. But there is a great way that you can have specific impact on the lives of some of the key people in singing; donate for music.
Because of these natural disasters, there are hundreds of voice teachers and music schools that have lost all of their music and gear, suffered damage to their pianos and the very buildings they teach in. These teachers will continue to hurt as lives and homes are slowly rebuilt and their students slowly return to their studios.
The way that you can help these voice teachers is by donating to the non-profit organization, the National Association of Teachers of Singing, also know as NATS. NATS has set up a fund where 100% of donations go to teachers who need the help to rebuild their studios during this difficult time.
