The Focus
When U.S. schools face tough budget decisions, music is often one of the first subjects to be cut
VH1 Save The Music Foundation’s goal is to make music and instruments an accessible part of every child’s education. Through VH1 Save The Music Foundation, $1.39 can provide access to one day of music.
