Advocacy

 

Music education is good for you. Students who participate in school music programs graduate at a higher rate, have higher GPA's, and score higher on standardized testing than their peers who do not.

Aside from the obvious creative aspects, the study of music helps students develop excellent critical thinking and problem solving skills, which are major tenets of the "21st Century Learning."

It also happens to be a lot of fun.

 

 

Music improves student achievement. The Florida Music Educators Association has a PowerPoint Presentation showing the dramatic impact of an education in the arts. Click HERE for a link to the FMEA Advocacy Page, then click on the "PowerPoint Presentation" link.

HERE is an opinion that suggests that marching band in particular is the BEST activity in which high school students can participate, including athletics, clubs and other academic courses.

HERE is a column by Vince DiFiore, a member of the band Cake, who speaks to the importance of music in schools and how being in the band helped him in many other areas of life.
