Nashville Notes Homeschool Band (Nashville, TN)
Jason Chan of Mozart Violins facilitated our donation of a brand new violin to Nashville Notes Homeschool Band. The presentation took place at the Hollywood Meets Nashville Grammy Viewing Party and Benefit Gala. The Nashville Notes Homeschool Band was founded in 1995 to provide music instruction for students schooled at home in the Greater Nashville area.
The Grammy Viewing Party was a fundraiser for two organizations, Save the Music America and the Global Music Project. Save The Music America is a social and educational organization that educates the public about the impact of illegal downloading, creating public support for preserving the rights of people within the creative industries and the history of American Music. Global Music Project uses music to help the socially conscious make a difference. Their current mission is to provide musical instruments to school children, locally and abroad. They partnered with Mozart Violins in Irvine, California, to furnish the violin that was presented to Nashville Notes.
“We’re very thankful for this donation. We have 170 kids in the program, and very few instruments for those who can’t afford to purchase their own. This instrument will be put to good use.” - Sholeen Wuest (program director)
