2021 ISB Practice-a-Thon Fundraiser

We're inviting bass students of all ages to enter our ISB Practice-a-Thon to raise money for the 2021 Young Bassists Program in June, part of the ISB's Virtual Convention. Raise funds by asking your family and friends to sponsor you based on the number of minutes that you practice during one week in March (you get to choose the week!) with a pledged amount per minute or with a flat donation.

Bassists will also have an opportunity to earn prizes when they report their practice and fundraising results. Everyone who enters will win a prize. Special prizes for most minutes practiced and most money raised!
