Every year, we bring together musicians from the tech community—VCs, entrepreneurs, developers—to raise money for Music in Schools Today (MUST). Bands have hailed from Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Wall Street Journal, Mayfield, Wired, Wall Street Journal, GigaOM, Walden Venture Capital, Gracenote, MOG and more. All proceeds for Silicon Valley Rocks are donated to Music in Schools Today (MUST). MUST is the Bay Area’s answer to the crisis in music education. Despite extensive research indicating that music instruction supplies intellectual, emotional and physical components critical to children’s development, music and arts programs are often the first victims of budget cuts. MUST advocates for, supports and develops integrated, accessible, sustainable and measurable music-in-education programs that improve student achievement.
