Kidznotes is excited to announce that we’ve been selected as the 2016 Band Together partner! Each year Band Together partners with a nonprofit to use live music as a way to bring about social change in the Triangle. Through this partnership, we will raise $1.5 million to help us reach our goal of serving 1,000 students by 2020 (500 in Durham and 500 in Raleigh).
We’ll leverage these funds through a multi-year plan, aiming to add 155 students in Raleigh and 115 students in Durham by the end of the 2016-2017 school year. This will require us to purchase 270 student instruments, including violins, double bass, tympani, trombones, oboes, bassoons, clarinets and french horns. To help us sustain this growth, we will add a double bass teacher in Durham and two more schools and six teachers in Raleigh.
Believe it or not, all of this growth will actually cut our cost per student by $846. Pretty cool stuff, huh? Keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook over the next couple of days for more information on this incredible partnership opportunity.
