Scholarship and Donations
The Las Vegas Jam Band Society has created a scholarship opportunity to support musicians, teachers and musical directors in the Las Vegas community. Our goal is to expand the accessibility of music specifically to children and those in an under serviced community. Music provides a creative outlet for many and our goal is to reach those who may otherwise not receive exposure and/or guidance.
Studies have shown that music can elevate and fend off depression. It can improve blood flow that lowers your levels of stress related hormones while easing pain. Music can play an important role in children's social and cognitive development. Listening to, singing or playing an instrument can be highly beneficial if started early. Music can improve ones linguistic development by training areas of the brain associated with language. Children who are musically engaged have shown higher levels of neural activity. Recent studies have found a relationship between better grades and higher test scores amongst those students who study the arts. With music, children have the chance to express themselves in a creative fashion. As a child develops, musical education builds both self-esteem and confidence while positively enhancing problem solving abilities in their social life.
The Las Vegas Jam Band Society is seeking people in our community who are using music to teach, inspire and reach our children. If you know anyone who could benefit from our support, please have them fill out an application. Scholarships are awarded every September or when the Board approves.
