On-Stage Supports the Music with Donation to W.O. Smith Music School

July 28, 2017

Accessories manufacturer and innovator On-Stage is proud to donate an array of music products and accessories to Nashville, Tennessee’s W.O. Smith Music School. On Stage is a Connecticut-based, family-owned business with a long history of supporting charities, community programs and schools that promote music education and performance.

 

Coming off another great Summer NAMM Show, one of the music industry’s biggest trade shows, On-Stage is giving the W.O. Smith Music School all the products it displayed in Nashville. The On-Stage NAMM booth is large for an accessories manufacturer, this year boasting over 200 products from a variety of categories, including instrument stands, tuners, microphones, bags and cases, and more. These products were on display all weekend for dealers, musicians, and other NAMM attendees. Now they are on their way to this noted educational institution, where they will facilitate instruction, performances, creativity, confidence, and teamwork for some of the area’s most deserving youth.

 

This is the second year On-Stage has collaborated with NAMM to donate products to a local organization. This past January, On-Stage donated its featured products to Los Angeles, California’s Harmony Project.

 

William Oscar Smith, Ph. D., W.O. Smith Music School’s eponymous founder, collaborated with Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, among many others, and became the Nashville Symphony’s first African American musician.  Founded in 1984 and enrolling 45 students, W.O. Smith Music School currently serves more than 650 underserved students annually with a wide variety of programs, a diverse curriculum and the continuing belief that “the power of music and musical instruction can change the lives of children from low-income families.” 

 

“Music was my ticket out of the ghetto,” Smith once said. “My hope is that music can help the children we touch realize their own ambitions, whether or not he or she goes on to pursue a career in music.”
