This is an unprecedented time in our lives. Each day brings with it more uncertainty, but what you can
be certain of is that with your continued support, we will all get through this. You can be certain that we
are steadfast in our commitment to fulfill our mission of providing music education to underserved
youth in Asbury Park, promoting the local music community, and bringing people together through the
undeniable power of music.
Virtual classes through our partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs and Lakehouse Music Academy have
already begun. We are working on providing opportunities, resources, and tools to the areas of the city
with limited availability and will do what is needed to continue. You can also be certain that although all
of our spring events have been delayed, we will be back providing the music you have come to love and
We want to let the musicians in our family know that we are here for you as you have always been for
us, supporting us with your time and talents whenever called upon. We have watched you continue to
bring people together by sharing your gifts through live streaming events and watch parties. You can
count on us as a partner. We will share your events on our social media platforms and ask all of you who
are enjoying the music they are bringing you to show them the love that they continue to show you.
Please support their endeavors by making it possible for them to continue to make all of our days a little
brighter and a little less isolated.
We are in unchartered waters and as new challenges arise, we will do what we can to meet them. We
are all working diligently to create solutions, ideas, and help where we can and will be sharing those
ideas in the days and weeks ahead.
Asbury Park has seen hard times before. Asbury Park will be okay because of the community of people
who live and work here and because of the music that brought us all here to begin with—and keeps us
