When will I receive the award for my contribution?

All tiers receive an award. Please see campaigns page for details.

Are you funding the curriculum and the music blocks platform?

This is specifically to fund the curriculum. Music Blocks is developed under Sugar Labs (www.sugarlabs.org).

Walter and Devin are part of Sugar Labs. Remake Music LLC was created specifically to help support teachers wanting to augment their curriculum with lessons that combine both music and computer programming. Music Blocks is our “go to” tool for younger students. As students progress, we move them to other powerful tools such as Lilypond (text-based sheet music interpreter), Javascript, Python, and more).

Can I contribute more than the maximum tier?

Yes, you may. Please choose “custom amount” and choose the contribution amount of your choice.

Note: You may contribute any amount. You are entitled to the award for the amount below the custom amount you contribute (e.g. if you would like to contribute $50, which is above “supporter tier”, but below “super-supporter” tier, you will receive the “supporter” tier prize.
