What is the STAGE?
“The Stage”, a non-profit organization, was formed by Notes N’ Beats in September 2019 and introduced to the audience at “THE FIRE” fundraiser event.  The Stage provides a platform for musicians to give back to the community through music. By volunteering with  “The Stage”, children and adults studying at or outside of Notes N’ Beats music school will be able to participate in various events organized by the The Stage non-profit.  These events will serve as a vehicle to make a difference to the less-fortunate in various areas related to health and education.  The volunteers can help with the organizational aspect of the event which includes but not limited to ideation, project planning, team management, marketing, fundraising, sales and the actual execution of the event, etc.  Volunteers also have an opportunity to identify and locate the beneficiaries from the event.  They have a chance to "See It Through" - To actually see the difference that they made in the life of another individual.
 
MISSON STATEMENT
The ultimate purpose of The Stage Non-Profit is to encourage music students and adults to leverage their musical skills to serve the less-fortunate.  The goal of The Stage is to promote compassion among our budding musicians and to inspire them to become leaders in their community and to make a difference as young citizens.
