Tune Up Philly

I interviewed Stanford Thompson, founder of Tune Up Philly, a week ago. It was such a wonderful interview, he had such a great point of view and I am so inspired by what he is doing.

Stanford Thompson is the founder of Tune Up Philly believes that music can help children “acquire valuable tools for cooperative learning, teamwork, academic success and self-esteem”. In my interview Stanford and I discussed what inspired Tune Up Philly, El Sistema. El Sistema is Venezuela’s youth orchestra which is a federally funded government program that allows children of all ages to practice their instruments of choice in hopes to teach children responsibility, self-esteem, and build character.

I had an hour of footage and compiled it down to a few minutes. I included all o my favorite quotes but I’M not sure how I feel about the music and the flow if the short. I need to add some footage and b-roll of students and things of that nature but hopefully it will all turn out well after my next visit to the school.

Anyway…I hope you weren’t turned away by my blah description…here is my ROUGH DRAFT
