"Music brings us together, helping us reflect upon who we are, where we have come from, and what lies ahead. The arts and music transcend languages, cultures, and borders … and helps exchange ideas and styles and share in the artistic vibrancy born from diverse experiences and traditions."

– Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States

We must be strong advocates for music education because it is often wrongly perceived as a non-essential aspect of academics. If you believe that music education is crucial for your child's development and education, then the responsibility falls on you and the broader community to ensure its survival and expansion. The most effective ways to influence decision-makers include:

  1. Familiarize yourself with the school district's budget cycle.

  2. Participate in school board meetings.

  3. Engaging with the community on Facebook to stay informed about events and crucial information

  4. Back your local music booster organization.

  5. Show your support for your school's concerts and local music events.
