Damien Escobar prides himself on his connection to the community and his work with children and those in need. The Damien Escobar Violin Collection is linked to two Damien Escobar initiatives; The Damien Escobar Music & Arts Foundation (D.E.M.A.F) and The Damien Escobar Academy of Music.
The Damien Escobar Music & Arts Foundation is Damien Escobar’s non-profit organization created to spearhead the revitalization of art and music programs into schools in urban communities. Currently, budget cuts and administrative decisions have caused many schools to completely remove music and arts programs from student’s curriculum. Having had his first experience with a violin in a school taught music program, Damien believes this is a travesty that needs to be rectified.
The Damien Escobar Academy of Music is an intensive alternative music program that focuses on, improvisation, song creation, musicianship, stage presence and more for students in grades fourth through twelfth. The camp attendees are being molded to encapsulate the full artistry of being a musician from industry veterans whose knowledge is invaluable.
For every violin that is sold, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Damien Escobar Music & Arts Foundation and The Damien Escobar Academy of Music.
