Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie alongside State Farm opened Notes for Notes, a music studio for The Boys and Girls Club in Henderson, NV Sunday, in efforts to help children develop skills as musicians.
Urie, a Las Vegas native who’s worked with State Farm in charitable efforts (Neighborhood of Good) since 2018, supported efforts to open the studio with a $500,000 donation from the insurance company, according to ABC’s Las Vegas affiliate KTNV.
The Fender Play Foundation also supported the effort, donating Fender Play subscriptions, guitar, amps and more totaling around $10,000.
“I can tell you right now, if I had these tools at your age, the band would have taken off when I was 12,” Urie said in a press conference regarding the studio. “You’re probably going to get a sped-up version of what I got.”
According to the news station, The Boys and Girls Club set to utilize the studio hope to have Notes for Notes operational “within the month” once teachers are hired.
