Review for Give A Note Foundation, Reston, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My students and I received a Give-A-Note Grant in 2015 and were treated to a visit from guest artist, RaeLynn. The biggest benefit for our music program was the attention. We were in the national spotlight! The local newspaper and radio station had coverage for the event and we were highlighted in a video post that included schools from around the country. We performed for an audience of over 1,000 people and shared the stage with a national celebrity. Our school district is high-poverty. We hear so many negatives about being an urban district and having 'inner-city' problems. The Give-A-Note Foundation challenged all of those notions. It gave my students the chance to be seen in a positive light. We could show everyone the power of music. Yes, the money was nice and it helped to sustain our program during the next school year, but it was the confidence boost that really excited our students, parents, and administrators!
