Members of the Goleta Rotary Evening Club were inspired Tuesday night by Nancy Earle’s presentation about the nonprofit organization, Jams Music School for low-income and at-risk children.

Earle, founder of the Star Jasmine Music Foundation, explained how, after her daughter’s death, she was inspired to help low-income and at-risk children bring about positive change through music. Instruments are provided to the children without cost through the generous donations from our community.
