Music students ready to work/play

Do you have a yard full of leaves that need to be raked? Or children who need childcare? Or a child interested in music lessons? Or a performance you need someone to play for? Or another fall project to tackle? If so, consider participating in MUSIC Days – MHS’s annual instrumental music fundraiser that allows people to hire students for their fall jobs who are then donated to help cover the costs of their musical performance trip to Nashville. Residents can hire music students for jobs such as yard work, babysitting, dog walking, pet sitting, mulching, car washing, musical performances, holiday decoration, gift wrapping, etc.

Money raised from MUSIC (Many Useful Students In our Community) days will be donated to help students pay for travel to perform in Nashville, Tennessee in March. Students will record at RCA Studios, perform at Vanderbilt University, and discover musical opportunities in Nashville.

Fundraising runs from October 29 to December 3. To request a student for a job, visit
