It's music to some Tulsa students' ears. Cox Communications teamed up with the VH1 "Save the Music" Foundation to present $55,000 worth of new musical equipment to Tulsaâ€™s Madison Middle School and Burroughs Elementary Tuesday.
The new instruments will help the schools continue to build up their music programs. VH1 says the study of music is a crucial component of a well-rounded education.
Laurie Schopp with VH1 Save the Music Foundation: "They're inspired to come to school. We know that their creative thinking skills are enhanced."
VH1 started the Save the Music Program in 1997.
