The Amador Student Music Fund
The Amador Student Music Fund (ASMF) is located in Amador County,. California,. The group originated as an action project stemming from proposed and now in effect, budget cuts throughout the state of CA, which have continued to all but eliminate music from most public schools in California.
The Amador Student Music Fund (ASMF) is committed to promoting, encouraging advancement of, and continuing support of music for all youngsters, enrolled in public or private schools, home-schooled or faith-based schools.
The ASMF operates as a fiscal partner under the Amador Community Foundation. As such, ASMF is eligible for 501 (C) (3) recognition. All contributions to ASMF are tax deductible.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide and promote the integration of music into the lives of disadvantaged students in order to enhance students' academic performance and creative and general development.
ASMF serves to provide instruments and weekly music instruction for EVERY child who wants to learn to play an instrument.
As a non-profit organization, the ASMF is committed to establishing the fund as a resource to help any student pay for music lessons and instruments,
Another of our goals is to enhance the quality of life of our young people thru music. This can be accomplished by exposing our students, at an early age to a variety of music through listening to and viewing live performances, as well as participating in music learning groups
It is the belief of ASMF that music creates bridges across diverse cultures and communities,
therefore the ASMF remains committed to continuing the fund as a resource to help students gain access to music lessons and purchase or rental of instruments, thus giving our youth the opportunity to make and perform music with others for others. The ASMF believes it's very important for student performers to have audiences who will appreciate their skills and come see them perform. The entire community can only be enriched by watching and hearing our young performers play beautiful music. Lastly, we seek to find performance venues for music students so that they can perform in public.
It is our pleasure to announce the appointment of
Meghan Joy O'Keefe
to the Board of Directors of the Amador Student Music Fund.
Meghan's background encompasses drama, art, and music including
composing, singing and performing at the keyboard as well as teaching.
We look forward to working with Meghan and feel positive that her
enthusiasm and organizational skills will be a great asset to the
Amador Student Music Fund and to our young students in the
Amador County community.
