Flea – bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers – has written to supporters of the Silverlake Conservatory of Music with some exciting news.
“I am writing to happily announce that the Silverlake Conservatory of Music has found a permanent home at 4652 Hollywood Blvd,” wrote Flea. “We are tremendously excited about this, we will be able to double the amount of students we teach, have our ensemble classes on site, as well as our recitals. We still have a lot of fundraising to do; however, we are going to build an amazing facility and expand our music program to provide the best possible music education to the kids of Los Angeles.”
The new facility has been a dream for the organization, which offers private music lessons at a reasonable cost and grants scholarships to children in need. Flea serves on the Board of Directors along with Anthony Kiedis, and the Honorary Committee includes Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith and Metallica.
