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.
Severe budget cuts in public school funding and an increased focus on standardized test scores have left many students across the country without access to music education. Research shows that music education develops critical-thinking and self-discipline skills, improves math and reading abilities as well as school attendance amongst many other benefits.
VH1 Save The Music develops long-term sustainable instrumental music programs by partnering with school districts to ensure that music is a part of the curriculum and readily available to all students.
