Gary Karr
Renowned Contrabass Virtuoso

"What FAYM has accomplished in helping young artists and exciting an awareness of the benefits of musical training in the community is nothing short of remarkable. I cannot imagine how my career in music would have been possible without the support and encouragement of mentors the likes of FAYM. I consider it a privilege to support this organization because its recipients of FAYM's mission will undoubtedly bring enrichment and beauty to all the lives they touch. FAYM's fame is spreading like wildflowers. Thank goodness for that!"

Jaime Bernstein

"FAYM is about so much more than learning a musical instrument. It's about giving kids a chance to see themselves as worthy, capable, and beautiful and that in turn helps them become the wise, compassionate, citizens of tomorrow who will make this world a better place."
