“We are very excited for the new opportunities these grants will provide to our middle school students,” said Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Lolli. “Music is a critical component of a well-rounded education, and through these grants, students will get hands-on experience with a variety of instruments.”

School officials said each school will receive 36 instruments, music stands, music stand carts and Sound Innovations instructional materials. Some of the instruments that will be provided are flutes, saxophones, trumpets, drums, symbols, among other instruments.

The Save the Music Foundation will also provide impact measurement and evaluation services for 10 years.
