We’re freaking out here at Brett's Bass Fund because our scholarship recipients are such AMAZING humans and so deserving…!
Congratulations Vincent Wright, Joe Reynolds, Amir Shell, Aiyanna Christopherson, Sita Sunil, Carrie Yanes and Hunter Buen! Stay tuned to learn more about these incredible humans and their passion for music!
But in the meantime below are a few quotes from some of our recipients. Reading their submissions brought us all to tears as has their passion and appreciation for the bass and music.
Stay tuned for more and THANK YOU to all of our
supporters who have made this a reality!
Reduce us to LOVE and basslines. . .
“The bass is not just a pure instrument; it's a way to express your feelings and emotions. It's a gateway to another world. Learning bass will take me on an adventure of discovery. I appreciate your support!”
“Bass is not just the foundation of any good band, it's the foundation of all music, and it's an art form I give the utmost respect to. I can’t express enough how thankful I am to be given a chance to finally cross a significant barrier in my play.”
"I've been learning a lot but hit somewhat of a plateau and this is exactly what I need to get to the next level. I hope I can live up to my fullest potential and honor Brett by doing so. Again, just so grateful. Honestly all butterflies and smiles right now."
"Growing up, my parents showed me so many great artists and so many different genres of music, to the point that my first words were a line from a funk song. Music has been a great outlet for me to express my emotions when it's hard to find the right words to describe them."
Do you or someone you know want to learn the bass but don't have the support or resources?
Are you or someone you know going through a tough time that could benefit from the gift of music?
Tell us more!
You can choose to submit an essay or a video submission!
