VH1 Save The Music Foundation has released its 2017 Principal’s Guide, which provides music educators with key information, resources and insight for building their school’s music program. This comprehensive resource explores such topics as the Every Student Succeeds Act, program budgets, standards and student success.

VH1 Save The Music is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids, schools and communities realize their full potential through the power of making music. The foundation provides grants to public elementary, middle and high schools that do not currently have an instrumental music program in place and works at the school district level to identify schools in need.
