Music education is a fundamental and necessary part of a good educational system, and I enjoy being able to be even a small part of the solution. I like knowing we are making things better, and generating goodwill to teachers and schools.

The Music for Teachers free sheet music giveaway program was launched to support music education, teachers and schools with free sheet music, school music books, music software and music textbooks. Each month, sponsor Music44.com randomly selects one lucky recipient from all entries. No purchase is necessary to enter or win this free gift. Void where prohibited. The program's first randomly selected sheet music winner is North Muskegon Public School in North Muskegon, MI.
"The Music for Teachers giveaway is open to all educational organizations that teach a music curriculum including public and private schools, music conservatories, and even private teaching studios," says Music44 school purchase order coordinator Michelle Oleck. "Schools and teachers have made Music44 a successful online presence, and this is our way of giving something back in a fun and exciting way. Everyone loves to get free stuff!"
Michelle continues, "The winner receives a coupon that works just like cash at the Sheet Music Store at Music44, where they can choose from among virtually all sheet music and music books currently in print. There is no limitation to the product selection and no purchase above the coupon amount is required. It is truly free sheet music, with no strings attached!"
At this time, the Music for Teachers gift amount is $100, but is subject to increase with the increasing popularity of the program.
Numerous studies have shown that show playing the piano tends to increase cognitive ability in students over time. Also, math skills have also been correlated to playing a musical instrument. The Music for Teachers program is designed to also draw attention to this, and the need for strengthening music education generally.
Owner Gary Osborne wholeheartedly supports the charity giveaway, saying, "Music education is a fundamental and necessary part of a good educational system, and I enjoy being able to be even a small part of the solution. I like knowing we are making things better, and generating goodwill to teachers and schools." He continues, "Teachers are the unsung heroes today; greatly undervalued and underpaid. There is no higher calling than investing in our kids, and I'm happy to be in a position to help support them with free sheet music and music books."
Gary envisions the Music for Teachers program to continue to grow into a full fledged charitable foundation. To support this effort, you are invited to join the free program.
