PCM is excited to introduce Practice-a-thon 2020, engaging students of all ages, levels, and instruments to practice and help raise funds for music scholarships. Throughout the month of October, PCM students will track their practice time and ask friends and family to support their efforts by making a financial pledge of a fixed amount, or an amount that correlates with how much the student practices.
At the end of the Practice-a-thon, PCM will award prizes for the most time practiced, the most social media posts, and the most money raised. And every student who raised $50 will be entered to win a raffle prize. These prizes will be announced on Friday, November 6, at the Practice-a-thon’s culminating recital on YouTube. This event will feature recordings submitted by participating students, celebrating their hard work in practicing and raising funds for PCM’s scholarship program.
Each year, PCM provides 80-90 students with financial assistance to enroll individual and group instruction. With the Practice-a-thon, we hope to raise $20,000 for 2020-2021 scholarships.
