What Is Music Makes Us?

Music Makes Us Logo

 Music Makes Us is a unique partnership between Metro Nashville Public Schools, the Mayor’s Office and the Nashville community. Together, these organizations work to provide meaningful support for Nashville’s public school music programs. Our goal is to increase access, participation and quality of music education for MNPS students.

The Music Makes Us initiative is administered by the Visual and Performing Arts department at Metro Nashville Public Schools. A Music Makes Us advisory council advances the goals of Music Makes Us and supports the sustainability of the public/private partnership through both strategic and tactical efforts, including the cultivation of community allies and funding sources.
