Hi harp guy; In my area, the recession caused the state and city to need more money to keep education at a good level; certain enrichment programs were cut. In elementary schools I noticed the Parent Teacher Associations are organizing yearly auctions now, to pay for field trips, specialized programs, and so on. A yearly auction can bring close to $100,000. to some schools here, when parents, teachers, and even students work hard to make it happen. A web site is put up, flyers are printed and distributed, and merchants donate goods. A music teacher needing students can offer with a printed certificate (worth perhaps $150. or less) some free lessons. If they enjoy your lessons and the parents see the benefit and can support continuing with you at your regular fee, you have a new student!. Simply phone school secretaries to find out if there is such an auction, and the deadline for submitting your donation of the gift certificate.
