Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Grant Supports Music Education at Boston Harbor Middle School Students
Boston, MA, February 1, 2012 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP, has awarded a Community Grant to the Boston Harbor Pilot Middle School to build an inclusive keyboard lab including keyboards, headphones, stands, as well as for a music teacher. Harbor Pilot Middle School is a fully inclusive school serving children from low-income urban families.
“The school community has identified that the arts are a foundation on which inclusion thrives, but currently, the music classroom has one piano and one keyboard for 256 students to learn notes, scales, chords and composition,” said grant applicant and music teacher, Amberlea Fraser. “For the students to develop skills and remain engaged in music learning they need more individual assistance and time with an instrument. Building the inclusive keyboard lab would be a huge step towards building a high quality, inclusive music program at the Harbor Pilot Middle School. This one time investment will effect positive change in the lives of students at the Harbor for many years to come.”
According to Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., added, “The students at the Harbor Pilot Middle School need tools to gain access to music education. We are delighted to support the school’s goal of providing a keyboard lab with features that allow for individualized and differentiated instruction so that every student at the Harbor School can learn to play an instrument.”
Created to support front-line educators who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the Community Grants subsidize small, concrete projects, which will improve inner-city education within Boston, Hartford, Providence, New York or Washington DC within the coming year. The Foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2000 in any one month. The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be found at www.brownrudnickcenter.com/foundation/communitygrant.asp.
