Grants of $1,000 to USA middle schools for music education programs having a community service component. Music students at recipient schools will provide at least three performances to seniors in the local community, interacting with them during and/or following each performance. The main purpose of the program is to develop emotional and social intelligence in students through public service activities rendered to members of the community.

The primary purpose of the Peter R. Marsh Foundation Music Grant Program is to support schools in their prioritized efforts to embed social and emotional intelligence in students. Student participation in public service activities is widely recognized as an effective way to accomplish this objective. Secondarily, the Grant:  1.) Provides funds for music teachers to use to enhance their school music education program, and 2.) Serves the senior citizens of the local community.

Live audience performances nurture skill, focus and confidence that pays dividends in other parts of the musician’s life. The senior audience has considerable availability and is readily accessible in an assortment of senior living facilities, retirement communities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior centers, senior events and ceremonies, churches and through military/veterans’ organizations such as the VFW, American Legion and the VA.  Through post-performance personal interaction with the seniors, the students will receive praise for their public service and encouragement to continue to serve.  The personal engagement with the audience supports the primary purpose of the Music Grant program and the goals of school administrations.

During the school year the Grantee’s music students must provide a minimum of three (or more) musical performances to the senior citizens of their greater community, and to create the opportunity for the students to have personal visitation with the audience members at each performance.

The types of performances (vocals, instrumental), the venue and the number of students who participate in each performance are determined by the Grantee. All music students should participate in a minimum of one performance.
