Project MuszEd, a non-profit organization providing music education and resources to underserved youth, honors Tish Ciravolo, President and Founder of Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, with the “Illumination Award” for her continued support and commitment to creating music opportunities for youth in need.
The “Illumination Award,” honoring supporters of music education resources for underserved youth, was awarded to Tish Ciravolo and Daisy Rock Girl Guitars by Project MuszEd at their annual Making a Notable Difference Awards Brunch on Sunday, May 15th. Through generous donations and support, participants of the MuszEd program are afforded unique musical experiences that include music theory courses, exposure to auditions, ensemble performance, and culturally enriching and diverse events at major venues.
As an advocate of empowerment through music, Daisy Rock Girl Guitars is a dedicated sponsor of Project MuszEd and its mission of offering no- to low-cost music instruction and musical instruments to youth with financial need. Charyn Harris, Founder and Executive Director of Project MuszEd, stated, “As a visionary, Tish also believes in giving back, having gifted instruments to hundreds of aspiring rocker girls.”
“Thank you to Charyn and Leanne and Jeff, and most of all Vicki and John and my family, for being there for me yesterday… I feel so illuminated!” said Tish Ciravolo upon receiving the “Illumination Award” from Project MuszEd. “It’s truly an honor to support such a great organization and my hope is that many others will join in Project MuszEd’s genuine cause too.” Distinguished honorees at the awards brunch included Jeff Smith and Ge Wang of Sonic Mule (Smule) and Leanne Summers of the Los Angeles Women in Music organization (LAWiM).
Since its launch in 2004, Project MuszEd has served as a vehicle for many life changing opportunities for inner city youth that include scholarships to Berklee College of Music, opening for The Black Eyed Peas and Ozomatli, a recording session with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and a special performance with The Isley Brothers.
