VH1 Goes Elementary
A long-time supporter of music education in Nashville schools, VH1 Save The Music Foundation dropped into a second grade classroom at Eakin Elementary with artist Drake White and visitors from Raymond Weil, a VH1 supporter. Over the past 15 years, the foundation has been a key partner in strengthening instrumental music education in Metro Nashville Public Schools. In recent years, keyboard labs have been placed in 9 school sites, including Eakin. The playful interaction between veteran music teacher Rita Black, Drake White and the students underscored a fundamental point— Music Makes Us… happy.
