I have had the pleasure to work with Music in The Schools on several occasions. My first experience was with a 12 week Summer Music Series at Historic Sunset Station. The event was geared to up and coming Texas artisits. We partnered with Music in the Schools to assist them in getting their message out. The organization was a dream to work with. They truly inspired the attendees each week with their mission. We had such a great experience working with them and believe so strongly with their cause that we sent a referral to the US ARMY ALL AMERICAN BOWL to use this organization to pull together a first time event with high school music students. The event was a huge success and the attendees loved the entertainment. The event ran exceeptionally smooth due to the planning of Music In The Schools.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Expanding the experience of high school students to performing at a major concert experience.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work to get them more financial support so the mission can spread to more schools.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the professionalism.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very reputable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way children participated in and viewed the arts.

Ways to make it better...

they had more community support.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the organization is very needed since school funding continues to be slashed.

Music In The Schools is music to our students ears. It is unbelieveable how this organization has spread the word that Music In The Schools is out to help and support all schools get the instruments and funds they need to keep music as a viable learning tool for students. The leadership of this organization is passionate and committed to keep the music playing. The students love to participate.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a musician since the 5th grade, I've appreciated the dedication and drive Music in the Schools has demonstrated toward our youth in San Antonio. Its an unfortunate fact that many school districts are loosing funding for music programs. It takes an incredible organization, such as Music in the Schools, to unselfishly support those wishing to learn by donating time, efforts, and instruments to promising musicians. Music is life.....and Music in the Schools is the beat that keeps many toes tapping. Thank you!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my job as an Event Announcer. Watching schools musical performances due the direct assistance of Music in the Schools is inspiring to all that hear them.

Music in the Schools is a great organization. In addition to many community music programs, they fulfill their mission of supporting music (arts) education through scholarships for area high school students. Having worked wtih them in the past -- U.S. Army High School Drum Line and Mariachi Contest, I have seen first-hand how students benefit from this organization. Next up -- a drive to collect musical instruments.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the impact of their programs on students.
