James Lee Vatter Memorial Piano Fund

The James Lee Vatter Memorial Fund was established in memory of our special colleague and his passion for students. The purpose of the program is to provide monetary assistance towards the purchase of a piano for a student in need. The amount of assistance is based on the availability of funds, as well as the applicant’s referral from their CNYAMT teacher.
