Build Your Core Programs

Grades 3-8

Build your instrumental music programs in Band, Strings or Mariachi.

The VH1 Save The Music Core Grant program restores music education programs in public schools across the country by making grants of new musical instruments, music stands and method books, and program services valued at $40,000 to public elementary and middle schools. To receive a full instrumental band or string or mariachi package, along with program support and evaluation for a ten year period, districts must budget and commit to funding certified music teachers’ salaries, provide maintenance and supplies, and schedule instrumental music classes during the school day. The Foundation then maintains a partnership with that district until instrumental music is in place in every school.
