For many years WUSS has been giving something back to the community in which our conference is held. This year we are supporting Banding Together, a non-profit organization in San Diego that brings unique music opportunities to individuals with special needs such as autism, Down syndrome, Williams syndrome, Rett syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injury and other neurologic disorders. People with these diagnoses often cannot easily communicate. Music therapy has been shown to improve communication and social skills, generate confidence, and reduce stress and anxiety in these individuals. Many families are burdened by the costs required to care for individuals with special needs and lack the financial resources for music therapy programs.
Your donation to Banding Together helps to provide scholarships and free programs, like Jam Sessions, to hundreds of special needs individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford music therapy.

IMPORTANT – When making your donation, on the question “Tell us your connection to Banding Together” please be sure to select WUSS 2023 Conference Attendee in the dropdown box so that we can track our donations!
