Service Through Music Practice-A-Thon

TLU's Service Through Music (STM) chapter—an organization seeking to enrich the lives of others by incorporating musical performances and music technology into local nursing homes—is encouraging any student who plays a musical instrument to log practice hours during this weekend while donors make monetary pledges per hour practiced.

Through STM's previous fundraising efforts, it has been able to partner with Guadalupe Valley Nursing Center in Seguin to equip their residents with 20 iPods, headphones, chargers, and iTunes gift cards through the new Seguin/TLU branch of Dan Cohen’s Music & Memory program. Each resident of the memory unit, which focuses on patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia, has his or her own iPod and a playlist of music featuring their personal favorites. This way, they can listen to music year-round without waiting for an outside group to come perform.

The group now has their sights set on making Windsor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Seguin the next official Music & Memory facility by leading the campus in a Practice-A-Thon on September 30 through October 2. 

Donors can pledge per hours practiced or make a flat donation to the STM. 


Pledge an amount for Service Through Music's Practice-A-Thon September 30 through October 2, 2016. All proceeds will benefit their Music & Memory program.


Please Note: Individuals will not be accountable for fees exceeding a maximum of 250 logged hours.
