TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Public Schools got a $15,000 check Monday morning from the OK Mozart International Festival in Bartlesville to help with the district's purchase and repair of musical instruments for students.

The program is called 'No Child Clef Behind.'

OK Mozart executive director Shane Jewell says the festival along with the Williams Companies Foundation, The George Kaiser Family Foundation and other private donors says the check will help the district make sure every child will have the opportunity to participate in the district's music program.

"Being myself a product of the arts education programs in Oklahoma from grade school through college, I am still grateful for the effect they had had on my life and I want to offer that same experience to any student who is interested, regardless of their economic status," said Shane Jewell.

The 'No Child Clef Behind' is also testing a new year round mentoring program with elementary age students and classical musicians in New York City via webcam.
