Ashley Smith & The Random Occurrence:
Instruments 4 Life , founded in 2011, provides free music lessons & instruments to underprivileged and deserving kids in the Tampa Bay area. Studies have shown that learning an instrument not only helps with increased academic achievement but also with emotional development such as increased self esteem, self confidence, & empathy. It’s no secret that music has been slashed from school budgets across the nation, especially those in underserved communities that need it the most. Music is Powerful. It is one of the only things that can be done when you’re young or when you’re old, when you’re together or alone, or when you’re happy or sad. Music is Therapy and a lot of the kids we work with need this to cope with some of the traumas in their life. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn and develop an outlet that can help them in so many ways. Instruments 4 Life has worked with numerous local foster group homes & community centers such as The Joshua House, Redefining Refuge, The Childrens Cancer Center, & more. Currently, nearly 100 kids per week at places like The Dream Center Ybor, City of Tampa Parks & Recs, & Tribe Seminole Heights are receiving art & music lessons. Together, we can make life musical!
