Dr. Tammy Lum, professor at the Nyack Rockland campus School of Music is also a member of the Rockland County Music Teachers Guild. She and Nyack students recently performed at the annual Music Marathon at the Palisades Mall in West Nyack, NY.
Proceeds received went to Helping Hands for the Homeless of Rockland. The non-profit provides shelter during the winter months and offers a broad range of services to the homeless throughout the year that include assistance with employment, housing, health goals, showers and clothing—all free of charge.
Through the Music Teachers Guild, Dr. Lum helps with the coordination of this outreach which gives her students an opportunity to share their talent in the local community as well as in events held on campus.
