Mark, 13, is an eighth grader who loves music, digital art and most creative things. He has two siblings and four pets, and he just happens to have autism. His favorite book is Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, and his favorite color is blue. Mark is musically inclined and has taught himself to play piano. Now, with a grant from The Wish List Project, he is taking weekly music lessons to learn how to read music and improve his skills. His piano instructor says Mark is "a very dedicated student with a great attitude," and mom says "music is giving Mark more self-confidence" and may very well lead to a career in music someday.
Please consider helping more young people like Mark build upon their musical talents while also gaining confidence and self-esteem.
