In response to student requests, with help from the Find your Grind Foundation, Green Dot Public Schools will welcome Play with Music back to Locke High School in Watts, Los Angeles in March 2017. Students are in for another season of playing with music, complete with field trips, collaborations with major and indie artists, and last but not least, learning music, production and performance, by doing it!
Vanessa wrote her first song with Play with Music, and entered it into the Robert F: Kennedy Foundation's "Speak Up Sing Out" song competition for human rights. Dedicated to her sister, Vanessa wrote "Free" about overcoming domestic violence. With natural talent for days, it's no surprise she's a finalist. Hear for yourself! Congratulations, Vanessa!
Play with Music students perform at the Skirball Center during the annual Golden Dot Awards for an enthusiastic crowd of 500 educators, public servants and administrators. We are SO proud of them!
