Harmony Project is an award-winning research-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that targets at-risk youth in underserved areas of Los Angeles. We promote positive youth development through year-round music lessons and ensemble participation.
Harmony Project currently maintains numerous full-time youth orchestras, and works to develop youth music ensembles throughout LA’s low-income neighborhoods. On November 4th, 2009, in a White House ceremony, Dr. Martin accepted the Coming Up Taller Award from First Lady Michele Obama, on behalf of Harmony Project. Administered by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in association with the National Endowment for the Arts, Coming Up Taller is the nation’s highest honor for an arts-based youth program. Harmony Project was the only California program to receive the award in 2009.
Harmony Project Founder Dr. Margaret Martin is working with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association (through the LA Phil’s ‘Youth Orchestra Los Angeles’ initiative) and researchers from Northwestern University and the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Beyond the Bell (after-school) Branch to document the impact of music education and youth orchestra participation on disadvantaged youth. Dr. Margaret has worked in low-income communities as an educator and community organizer for more than 30 years. She is a passionate proponent of arts education and its capacity to transform the lives of children with few resources, along with the neighborhoods in which they live, and she works to seed music programs for at-risk youth in other communities.
They led me to research linking early-sustained music learning to improvements in math, language, cognition, brain development and behavior – the basis for Harmony Project.

The IHOP commercial was released after last weeks “ Eggstatic 8″ Breakfast Bracketology commercial for IHOP. I really take over in this new commercial as my co-host is way to busy stuffing his face with IHOP pancakes. People really want to win breakfast for a year at IHOP, so the campaign has been very successful.
We all knew Kentucky was in the finals and would most likely win the college championship game. Kansas was a bit of a surprise if you follow all the sports talking heads and the no it all’s, but if you look at consistency, Kansas is usually on everybodies list and brackets.
I was kind of rooting for Ohio State, just because Kansas will be losing anyway to Kentucky in the big game, and partly because I wanted to see a change of tempo to that of half court Big 10 style. Ohio State deserved to lose after self destructing in the second half with such a demoralizing lead.
Most people in the country who follow college basketball had Kentucky to win it all, a long long time ago. Do you have them winning, or was your bracket ruined a long long time ago?
Follow me on Twitter and like my facebook fan page. To win breakfast for a year, go to IHOP’s facebook page and play Breakfast Bracketology.
Women are buying cars:
A new study by an automotive industry analyst says: 38.5 percent of all new vehicle registrations in the United States are attributed to women. The analyst added that the rate of women buyers, keeps going up each year. Car dealerships know who is buying their vehicles, and they also know that people who drive Audi are amongst the most beautiful behind the wheel. A new survey brings to light the idea of who’s sexier behind the wheel, and according to a UK firm, Audi drivers are more physical appealing. Confused.com says 21 per cent of men rated women Audi drivers as the sexiest – and women agreed, voting male Audi drivers top with 31 per cent.
Luxiourous travelling is important for when I travel the world exclusively in first class, but is equally important when riding locally near my home. When I found out fletcher jones opened an Audi dealership in Beverly Hills, California, I had to check them out. Audi has always been one of my favorite automobiles, because of their attention to detail and their approach to style, handling and power. The Fletcher Jones commercial came about because I am really into cars with power and style and they wanted someone with the sincerity and honesty to really desire an Audi. I showed up to the video shoot in my St. Johns dress, and they went crazy for it, and told me not to change a thing. The commercial turned out great and I had a great time driving the Audi TT RS around Beverly Hills. Follow me on twitter and make sure to like me on facebook.]]>
The next commercial for IHOP’s breakfast bracketology just came out where I play sportscaster Mary Clark. You finally get to see my playful side, as I get into a fight on the set over who has the beat bracket picks. Anything with pancakes, is my pick. I would really like to know your picks for the remaining four, and for your favorite breakfast at IHOP? Comment on this post, or on my Twitter @rebeccagrants or my Facebook to let me know.
The 1st-3rd rounds of the tournament are over. We are now down to 16. Is your bracket miraculously intact, or is it broken, like most of America? Were you in some pool, where you had schools selected for you, or did you break your brackets all on your own? You need to share what happened to you, no matter how bad or how good.
My picks for the last four:
I had picked Florida State to make it to the finals, but now that its over and the school broke my bracket. I have to rethink things. Michigan State was in my original bracket going through, as well as Kentucky. I had also picked North Carolina as my fourth pick to make it. Perhaps Cincinnati will be my new 4th team to make it? (If Ohio brag rights mean anything to the Ohio State players, school and state, then Ohio State’s pride might be to much to handle for the upstart Cincinnati)
Big Ten Excites me
I have been very impressed by the Big Ten this tournament, much more than in the past, and if it was not for Michigan going down to Ohio University, they would have been perfect. I still think Ohio State has a great chance, as long as there are other players besides Sullinger coming to shoot the lights out. Indiana is also very impressive, and could give Kentucky a hard time. From what we all have witnessed, Wisconsin could take out Syracuse. Michigan State will have a tough battle with Louisville, but the matchups might not work out for Louisville’s favor, and we could see Nix and Payne have big games, or free up 3 point sharp shooters. Green is the answer for all problems.
Who else is left in the remaining 16?
Kansas, has had a tough game they had played in beating Purdue, but I am hearing about injuries, that may destroy their chemistry. I do see them beating North Carolina State though.
My last hope is the kids from Florida:
The Gators are looking very tough, so I would recommend not to count them out just yet.
IHOP wants you to fill out your breakfast bracket on our Facebook page: http://on.fb.me/FPSBvx for a chance to win breakfast for a year!
Don’t forget to start trending #BracketMary to let me know you are a true fan of mine.
Rebecca wanted everyone to remember that unlike other female sportscasters, Rebecca is a seasoned actress, and decided to do this role as a kind of ode to anchorman with a kitsch and a wink.
IHOP is actually giving away a year of breakfast just for “liking” their facebook page. (Well the official rules for winning are actually on the ihop facebook fan page, and 4 lucky winners will be awarded breakfast for a year)
Fans of Rebecca Grant, will finally be seeing the delicious sports babe talk about another sport besides NFL Football. “I’ve always loved college basketball, but the NFL paid better.”
Who’s ready for some basketball? The college basketball tournament begins in march, with the highly anticipated selection show on sunday march 11, where the brackets will be anounced. Following is a month-long battle of skill, sweat, and action packed games as the top collegiate teams fight for the Championship.
The Men’s College Division I Basketball Tournament is played with a single-elimination game between each team in their bracket. The tournament is held in the United States, and features 68 college basketball teams, in battle to win the national championship. The tournament’s college teams include 31 automatic bids from division 1 conferences (which mysteriously always seem to include Notre Dame), and 37 other college teams given bids based on various equations (which appear very fair, as compared to other college sports)
What is a “Bracket”?
A bracket in this college context can be defined as 68 college teams in total are placed in 4 regions with single elimination games. Winning your matchup allows you to continue to another team in your bracket, that also won their game.
What is a “Seeding”?
Each of the 68 colleges are “seeded”, or ranked, within its region. After their first 4 games between 8 lower seeded colleges, the tournament takes place over 3 weekends, at pre-selected neutral sites around the United States. Lower-seeded colleges are placed in the bracket against higher seeded schools. Each weekend cuts three-fourths of the teams, from a Round of 64, to the final 16, then onto the remaining 4. Its these remaining 4 teams that play the first week of April. These four teams, one from each region, battle it out in one destination for the United States college championship.
