Save The Music
Music has always been something very near and dear to our hearts. The benefits of music education are astounding, and studies have consistently exposed the tremendously positive effect music education has on a child’s academic performance, sense of community, self-expression and self-esteem. But as schools across the country increasingly face budget cuts and pressures, music is often one of the first subject areas to be cut. The VH1 Save the Music Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring music programs in America’s public schools and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education. So far, they’ve provided $52 million in new musical instruments to nearly 2,000 public schools, directly affecting 2.6 million children.
