Music in our Schools" month, and all kinds of organizations (VH1, the National Association for Music Education, and DoSomething.Org to name a few) are working to activate students across the U.S. to raise awareness about this issue and prevent losing their school's music education programs. The Battle for the Bands campaign is a big part of this campaign, and this year, Glee's Amber Riley is lending her voice to the effort (last year, Nick Jonas was a spokesperson for the campaign).
The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child's complete education. To date, the Foundation has provided more than $47 million in new musical instruments to 1,750 public schools in more than 100 cities around the country, impacting the lives of over 1.6 million children.
