What a boost for music education! East Nashville Magnet School is one of just 16 schools in the nation to win the GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award. That means the band program gets a $2,000 prize.

The award is part of the GRAMMY in the Schools program and is supported by Journeys and Converse.

Great job, East!
