Grand Opening/ Open House Nashville MusicBox #1

Please join us for the Grand Opening/ Open House of our first MusicBox in Nashville, TN in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tenneessee. It has been quite a journey from inception in 2006 in Santa Barbara, CA to the opening of our first location in a new city. We are extremely excited to be a part of the Nashville community and look forward to  showing you the future of Notes for Notes and the music resources now available to area youth… for FREE.

In advance we thank you for your support Nashville as you have embraced the organization and made it possible for us to do what we do. Stop by on February 2, 2011 between 3:30-6:30pm to learn more about Notes for Notes, see the studio and remember what it would have been like to have these resources as an aspiring musician.

The MusicBox Studio is located inside the Andrew Jackson Boys & Girls Club at 916 16 Ave N, Nashville, TN 37208

AND if you have musical instruments (guitars, drums, keys/synths, turntables, computers, digital music creation tools, studio gear, or something really cool) that you would like to donate please bring them as we are currently developing a second Nashville MusicBox at the Preston Taylor Boys & Girls Club.

Look forward to seeing you there!
