AARON B DUKE Selected As A Designer for the 2017 Pasadena Showcase House of Design
AARON B DUKE has the distinct honor of being selected as one of the designers for the prestigious Pasadena Showcase House - a 501(c)3 non-profit California organization founded in 1948. The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the country. This year, the Samuel Hinds estate of architectural significance is completely renovated by prominent designers using the latest color trends, concepts, products and technology. The Showcase House is open to the public for tours from mid-April to mid-May.
The proceeds from the Pasadena Showcase House of Design allow for funds for three annual music programs, plus award gifts and grants to other nonprofit organizations that provide music programs including music therapy, music education, scholarships and the underwriting of concerts.
This is a cause near and dear to me. From piano lessons, to public school music programs, and later as a performing member of the 17-time Drum Corps International World Champion, Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps from Concord, California, it afforded me opportunities to tour around the world, build lasting friendships and connections, and played an integral role in person I am today. I was taught lessons of discipline, dedication, perseverance, and excellence – all integral parts of my character and have developed me into an entrepreneur and business owner.
Research has found that learning music facilitates: learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas; language development; increased IQ; special-temporal skills; and improved test scores.
We all have a love for music. It is the soundtrack of our lives. If you, or someone you know has been impacted by the benefits of music education or therapy, please, make a donation.
