Multi Grammy award winner and platinum selling artist George Benson met with All You Need Music at the Ottawa Jazz festival last June and signed one of his signature series Ibanez guitars in support of All You Need Music’s collaboration with the Canada Music Academy scholarship fund.
The Autographed Ibanez Prestige GB15 George Benson Signature Series Guitar, will go to the highest bidder and all the proceeds from the auction will go to the Canada Music Academy scholarship fund to benefit music students and after school programs across Canada.
All You Need Music has always been committed to making music education as accessible as possible and has teamed up with the Canada Music Academy to make it a reality. This is an exciting venture for us, not only because we have the support of one of the greatest jazz musicians of this era, but because this collaboration will afford us the opportunity to provide scholarships to deserving students who, as a result of exceptional talent or exceptional circumstance, will now have access to music education that they might not have had otherwise.
All You Need Music and The Canada Music Academy would like to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. George Benson and his management team for supporting our Scholarship fund.
