Driven by the belief in music’s influence on children’s lives, Notes for Notes (N4N) has dedicated itself to being an answer to the lack of contemporary musical equipment and programs in public schools. For the past 17 years, the non-profit organization has built 26 N4N recording studios, providing the instruments, guidance, and space for young people to create music and realize their artistic identity.
As an early supporter of the non-profit, KRK, through its charitable arm KRK Kares, has provided gear for every N4N studio across the country. This includes N4N’s most recent studio powered by Sony Music Group at the Boys & Girls Club of Metro LA’s Watts/Willowbrook, which was stocked with KRK CLASSIC 7, ROKIT 10-3 G4, and ROKIT 5 G4 Studio Monitors, as well as the brand’s KNS 8402 Headphones. With KRK Kares’ latest donations, every Notes for Notes studio is now equipped with KRK at every level, giving youth at 26 studios across 13 states the ability to produce, record, and mix like the pros while learning the ins and outs of music creation.
