2016 Keys + Kids Piano Grant Program
Pianos often serve as the nucleus for many arts programs in schools. Not only does a quality piano serve general and instrumental music, but it also influences theater programs, dance programs and choral groups. Additionally, a piano magically creates a sense of unity, bringing together students, teachers, parents and community members for school concerts and performances of all kinds.
In response to the growing need for high-quality, functional pianos, and to provide even more students with a safe and inclusive community to be outstanding through the arts, VH1 Save The Music Foundation created the Keys + Kids Piano Grant Program, available to all K-12 public schools with a full time certified music teacher who teaches music as part of the regular school day.
The grant consists of $10,000 worth of musical instruments; a Casio Celviano Grand Hybrid GP-500 Piano and 3 Casio WK-7600 Music Workstations.
