Day 9: Twelve Days of Giving
It’s Day 9 of Our Giving Thanks Celebration.
Today we want to thank 21st Century Fox and Lauren De Marco FOX 5 DC for partnering with us, announcing $50K in grants to 16 schools this year!
Said Tilden Middle School (Philadelphia) Music Teacher Alandra L. Abrams: “We know that music programs that are sufficiently supplied can and will offer opportunities for students to learn in a different way. We also believe that the experiences the students have in music filters back into their academic education and makes those students better learners. Music also reinforces discipline, collaboration, and social interaction among youth. Students learn to work together and understand the importance of that in order to create a beautiful product, in our case, music.” Read more from other teachers whose schools received music grants this fall.
