'There's a lady who's sure
all that glitters is gold
and she's buying a stairway to heaven...'
I thought perhaps I should give some artists other than the Beatles some attention. To start with. It won't be long (yeah) 'til the Beatles have their turn.

Sales from all ACEOs drawn in June go to support the Community Music Institute's scholarship fund. The CMI is operated out of the University of Oregon, and provides musical studies for local children and teenagers. The links between music and academic success is well documented, and music is a crucial element of culture which, unfortunately, is one of the first to lose funding in tight economic times. I've seen firsthand a very impressive performance by these young musicians, so I know the CMI has some superb teachers.
