Give a Note and Radio Disney Hitting the Road to Celebrate Music Education

The Give a Note Foundation and Radio Disney are hitting the road to celebrate music education. Six schools have been selected for the 2016 Music In Our Schools – Music Inspires Tour!

Schools from all over the nation shared performances of songs that inspired their music students. And this past month, more than 40,000 votes were cast to select one school in each of six regions around the United States to receive a grant from the Give a Note Foundation for their music program and a celebration concert with a Radio Disney artist.

2016 marks the third year of the annual Music in Our Schools Tour, and thanks to the generosity of Radio Disney the reach will be further than it has ever been.

Congratulations to:

  • George A. Jackson Elementary School of Jericho, NY;
  • Spanish Fork Junior High School of Spanish Fork, UT;
  • Maplewood Elementary School of Puyallup, WA;
  • Shady Hill Elementary School of Ocala, FL;
  • Stapleton Public Schools of Stapleton, NE;
  • and Southwest Elementary School of Dexter, MO!
