The Strum Fund is a community based fund through the The Strum Shop in Downtown Roseville, CA allowing underprivileged youth in our community, access to music lessons, rental instruments, lessons materials, repairs and more at no cost to the student or their family.
We believe that all children should have access to music education. Kids who learn to play an instrument enjoy both academic and personal advantages for the rest of their lives. Studies have shown that music supports other learning such as: math, science, creativity, art, problem solving, communication skills and more. Music also provides an outlet for self expression and focuses on "doing" rather than observing. Young musicians learn to conquer fear and take risks. Early music training even helps develop brain areas that involve language and reasoning. These are all essential skills that shape young lives forever and help them to become productive and positive members of the community.
