Country starlet Lauren Alaina stayed busy during festival season, as highlighted in the first episode of a video series detailing her work with State Farm and nonprofit Notes for Notes.

The video shows southern signer engaging with under-served youths from the nonprofit program, which supports after-school music education for those without access to it. At the festivals, Alaina would encourage fans to give back and participate in a wide variety of musical activities in onsite interactive recording studios sponsored by State Farm’s Neighborhood of Good program.

Championing music education, Notes for Notes designs, equips and staffs free after-school recording studios in Boys & Girls Clubs where youths can explore and learn about the world of music in a fun, unique way. It’s a program Alaina is proud to be involved with.

“As a kid, there weren’t many places for me to go to be able to learn about music,” the Georgia native shared in the clip. “If I can do anything with my platform to help people, it’s the most rewarding thing.”

With many arts programs being cut in schools, music education needs help now more than ever, which is what Notes for Notes, State Farm and Alaina are trying to do. State Farm is even making a commitment of $500,000 to the program in 2019.

“Music changed my life,” Alaina said. “I know that for kids across the country, music could literally change their lives, like it did mine.”
