 Director's Notes

   

HELP SAVE THE MUSIC! The arts and arts education are getting hit hard by budget cuts all across America. The arts (music) provide things that no other discipline can...see Dan Rather's quote below. The National Mucsic Education Association is trying to connect supporters of the arts through an online group called "ground swell." This group provides advocacy for music education in our schools. You can join by going to http://advocacy.nafme.org/. Join today and help save the music!

 

MUSIC ADVOCACY QUOTE:

Music majors have the highest SAT scores of any discipline. Also...66% of music majors who applied to medical school were admitted, the highest percentage of ANY major. 44% of biochemistry majors who applied were admitted.

 

:

"WOW, here we go again. Hang on and enjoy the ride! "
