Belmont Partners with Foundation for Noise! Camp

Belmont University is partnering with the Muzak Heart & Soul Foundation to bring NOISE! Music Camp to Nashville
July 18-28. Students aged 15-17 throughout the U.S. with a passion for music who are interested in making a career within the music industry are encouraged to apply for the camp at www.heart.muzak.com. Applications must be returned by April 2, 2010.
The Muzak Heart & Soul Foundation helps students channel their passion for music into real world opportunities by providing educational programs for teens on all aspects of the music business. Heart & Soul was established in 1998 by Muzak, a leading provider of business, music, and other sensory branding services that believes in the power of music education to change and better lives. The foundation, which seeks to support and redefine music education, grants over $100,000 annually to school music programs around the country. Studies have shown that schools that have music programs have significantly higher graduation rates than those without programs – 90 percent as compared to 73 percent, and students with band or orchestra experience attend college at a rate twice the national average.
