NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas teamed up with the Nashville Symphony's new Music Mobile project Tuesday to help bring more music into local schools.

The Music Mobile is a rolling music activity center featuring an "Instrument Petting Zoo" filled with classical, country and bluegrass instruments.

"It puts our music education programs on the road," Nashville Symphony Vice President Mitchell Korn explained.  "It is a rolling repository of instrument loans of a petting zoo where we introduce instruments, where we provide lessons, brief concerts and education programs."

While learning to boot a football, Bironas found a little time to bang on a drum and pick a guitar.  It fed an interest in music that led to his donation to the symphony's Music Mobile project.

"Children, when introduced to music, are more likely to succeed in school and in life," Bironas said in a statement.  "Applying the same commitment to mastering an instrument can be as challenging as attaining touchdowns on a football field.  I am proud to be a part of this project."

When launched next school year, the Music Mobile will become one of the many learning opportunities offered through the Nashville Symphony's commitment to music education.

Last year, the Nashville Symphony served more than 170,000 children and families through music education and community engagement activities.
