In March, "normal" for students at Englewood's Musical Life Denver included weekly band rehearsals, private lessons and jam sessions to prepare for mid-April performances. With stay-at-home orders came in-person lesson cancellations and concert postponements.
The staff at Musical Life Denver developed plans to keep students staying musical and motivated while staying at home through remote learning. The music school then began to come up with ways to give back to those on the front lines of the pandemic.
With that in mind, Musical Life began its Healthcare Appreciation Giveaway in mid-May, offering free lessons and instruments every week through June. Those associated with Musical Life Denver may nominate health care professionals, and a winner's name will be drawn at random each Sunday.
“We just really wanted to find a way to show our appreciation to those who have been working non-stop to keep our community safe and healthy at large,” Musical Life Denver owner and founder Robby Schechter said in a news release.
To nominate someone, follow Musical Life Denver on Facebook or Instagram. To donate an instrument for this cause, email firstname.lastname@example.org with as much information as you have about the instrument and a few photos.
Musical Life Denver offers virtual private lessons in bass, guitar, keyboard, voice and drums, and also has bands and jam sessions. The office at 2842 S. Broadway, Englewood, began reopening June 1 with limited capacity and strict social distancing measures and safety protocols in place.
