I need the help of my friends, family, community and strangers to help me further study Italian frame drumming with Alessandra Belloni. I have been playing drums since my 23rd birthday, and soon I will be 35 on July 24th! Four years ago I started playing the frame drum with Miranda Rondeau. Two years ago I met Alessandra Belloni and began studying her Southern Italian Tambourine style as well. It has been my dream to attend her Rhythm Is The Cure 7-day intensive workshop in Italy. Alessandra and I share the same birth date too!
If I can raise the money I can make my dream come true! I just need to raise immediate funds to book my round trip flights from London to Italy and back, as well as register and pay for the course. From there I can get travel insurance, and raise additional funds for other travel and food expenses.
Your donations, no matter how small, mean so much. Any amount of $3, $5, $10, $20, + are deeply appreciated! Paypal and Venmo preferred too (no fees). Just send funds to maryone66 at gmail.com as the recipient. Or feel free to use the campaign link below. If you cannot donate perhaps you can share! Thank you!
Much Love & Gratitude,
Mary Ann Martinez
