SDCOE, 91X, the Music Box, and Green Flash Brewing Company are now accepting applications for Inspired By Music grants. Teachers from San Diego County public schools are invited to apply to receive grants supporting music technology; teacher professional development; field trips to musical events, media facilities, or music museums; and other innovative programs.
Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Feb. 28.
“There are a lot of excellent teachers out there who are incorporating music into a variety of subject areas–from math to technology to science–because it’s such a powerful tool to engage students,” said San Diego County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Gothold. “Inspired By Music grants will allow even more teachers to bring music into the classroom, helping more San Diego County students find their identities and express themselves while learning.”
Grant funding comes from the Inspired By Music concert series at the Music Box concert venue in Little Italy. Concerts focus on new music discovery and up-and-coming artists, with $1 of every ticket sold going to the grant fund.
“To say we’re thrilled is an understatement,” said 91X Program Director Garett Michaels. “This wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of Green Flash Brewing Company and their matching donation, collaborative support from the team at The Belly Up and Music Box, the artists and bands who have stepped up to perform, and, of course, all the San Diego music fans for coming out to the shows and supporting a great cause.”
