And this year the students practiced 9,227 minutes and raised nearly $400 for the elephant orphans, so we will be fostering 8 babies, rescued and cared for by The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Learn more about the vital and dedicated work that they do at their Facebook page, where you will find wonderful videos about all that the Trust does: today’s video is all about the orphan babies and what their days are like!
Last year’s Spring Recital
Little Dupotto, she’s one of our elephant fosters.
The Practice for the Elephants Contest raised $155.74, enough for us to adopt 3 orphaned baby elephants for a year, or 1 for 3 years, I’ll let the students decide. I am so proud of all of them for raising this money, just by practicing the piano, to help the orphaned elephants in Kenya.

Baby elephants are orphaned when their parents are killed for their tusks for the ivory trade. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust helps these orphaned elephants. For more information on the fostering program for orphaned elephants in Kenya, please click here.
Kids, young and old!
Practice for Elephants Contest begins this week. We’ll practice for 5 weeks, me included!, and the money we raise—2 cents for every minute—will help to adopt an orphaned baby elephant in Africa.
I’ve put the link below to the program, and will have your practice charts and info sheets in the studio this week!
