HEADLINES

Music classes are a welcoming and inclusive school community that emphasizes teamwork and positive self-expression. With all of the uncertainty and trauma in our world at this time, it is essential to the social and emotional well-being of our students that this community stays intact. If cuts are made, it will take years for our music programs to recover, and our students will be deprived of an activity that connects them to school and to each other, during a time of isolation and crisis. Now more than ever, schools must offer stability, inspiration, and a framework of support that will enable students to thrive. Music education fosters character development and learning in creativity, literacy, cooperation, teamwork, and humanity. For many students, music is a lifeline in times of trouble
