VH1 Save The Music Foundation
Research proves that children in high-quality music education programs score better when tested in English and mathematics, and tend to have better critical thinking skills, motor skills, and memory. For many of us, our involvement in school activities like band or chorus set a foundation of important social skills like leadership and teamwork, along with a heightened self-esteem, that we have carried through our adult lives.
Due to increasing budget cuts each year, more and more public schools in the United States are forced to decrease funding for their school’s music education programs, and in some cases, cut them completely. That’s why VH1 Save The Music Foundation is more important than ever.
The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education programs in America’s public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education. Founded in 1997, VH1 Save The Music was the first organization in existence dedicated to restoring music programs in America’s schools. For nearly 20 years, the foundation has donated over $53 million worth of new musical instruments to 2,024 public schools in 247 school districts around the country to date — impacting the lives of more than 3 million public school students.
