In Dallas, Texas, there’s a special place called THE SOUND FOUNDATION – a music school that helps prepare young students for all facets of the music business. Run by Norman Matthew Pangle, whose band, MURDER FM, I first wrote about several years ago while working for another publication, The Sound Foundation covers everything from artist development to recording instruction. Norman is a fellow “Rock Father,” and much as becoming a parent changed and re-shaped my own life, the birth of Norman’s son did the same for him – really placing a focus on giving back, and The Sound Foundation has become that outlet. Over the past few years, people have taken notice of Norman’s work with The Sound Foundation, and this past January he was featured in FORD Tough’s GOOD WORKS. Check out the video below…

Now comes The Sound Foundation Rock Scholarship, a new initiative that seeks to “help give those who don’t have the financial resources a chance to chase their dreams, develop their inner artist and grow with a musical mentor in the musical and loving community that is The Sound Foundation family.” Through IndieGoGo, The Sound Foundation is seeking your help – with every donation set to help young artists in some way, shape or form. 

Perks include compilation CDs, t-shirts, and even acoustic performances from DROWNING POOL guitarist C.J. Pierce, or Norman Matthew Pangle himself. There’s even an autographed guitar up for grabs!

To learn more and get involved (I tossed in a few bucks myself), check out The Sound Foundation Rock Scholarship on IndieGoGo.
