In-School Music Education

Darden Smith Leading a Workshop

Since 2009, The Bugle Boy Foundation has brought live music to Fayette County area schools. These programs are funded by donations provided to us from Faith P. & Charles L. Bybee Foundation, Texas Women's Leaque, National Bank & Trust, Round Top State Bank, Fayetteville Bank & Fayette Electric Cooperative Inc.

In collaboration with Arts for Rural Texas and SWIFT (Schulenburg Weimar In Focus Together), we have presented Darden Smith's "Be an Artist" workshops and Woody Russell & Jose Ruiz's BluzSkool to rural school children. Acivities for these programs include composing and recording original songs and offering kids a chance to learn to play instruments such as the guitar and harmonica. Kids even get the chance to "jam" with professional musicians.
