It was an opportunity for students to hear professional musicians and learn about the importance of practicing their instruments.  Thanks to VH1 Save the Music Foundation, Hurt Park Elementary received new instruments this school year.

Maceo Parker encouraged the students to pursue their love of music.  The group from Hurt Park also toured the Music Lab and were treated to pizza.  Thanks to the Jefferson Center for arranging this opportunity for our students.
