I am excited to contribute this drawing to the Silverlake Conservatory of music auction next week Sept 29th. Proceeds from the auction will go towards providing music lessons to kids who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it. It's a great place to learn and open to everyone. @silverlake_conservatory

10 years ago we made an improv comedy musical - my 3rd feature Your Name Here - a love poem to the music scene in Silver Lake back when it was a one-word town. #fff #femalefilmmakerfriday #silverlake #silverlakeconservatoryofmusic #womenmakefilms #yournamehere #tamarhalpern @hellojoesmith @avery.clyde @henrysheadmusic @michaelmctaggart @jhsandmusic @darrengroucutt #llynfoulkes @ryanspahn #improvcomedy

Silverlake Conservatory mamas! Spent the morning at my old job with one of my best friends Jenny. So impressive to see their growth due to the work she, Flea and their awesome team has done. They still make me part of the fabric of their giant quilt and I’m honored. 💜❤️🧡💛💚 #silverlakeconservatoryofmusic

We’d like to give a little shout out to our neighbors @silverlake_conservatory. A great institution which offers music lessons be it the guitar, trumpet, oboe, etc. they also do some worthwhile events there pretty regularly. I wish this sort of thing was around when I was a kid. Go and check em out!

I worshipped the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a kid. I must have listened to Blood Sugar Sex Magik (their 1991 breakthrough album) 500 times. So it was a thrill to meet Flea at this event in Malibu. He spoke about the @silverlake_conservatory, a non-profit music school he founded in 2001 for underprivileged children.
Flea choked up talking about music education: “Growing up in Hollywood in the 70s, I was in a bad home, I was a street urchin, always getting into trouble. When I was 14 and I blew the trumpet in music class, I felt connected to all the peace and beauty and love in the world. From that point on I had a purpose and sense of community. Without music I was headed for trouble.”
“Learning to play an instrument is one of the greatest gifts you can give a kid. The greatest tragedy is for someone’s life to go by and they never express what’s inside of them. The music school isn’t about being a rock star. It’s a place to learn music, about the creative process in general. A place for kids to learn and teach and connect.”
“As a kid I was nicknamed Flea because I jumped around like a maniac all the time. Then I wanted a rock’n roll name and I used Flea. Then I got a role in a movie as Flea, and it took off from there.”
“Playing drums is fun as hell. I’m 55 and it only gets more fun.”

Jumping in to the new week like our SCM founders Flea and Anthony! Happy Monday!
