As a musician, I am keenly aware of how important the music and the arts are to our culture. I’ve experienced the power of music first hand. For me, music has opened a doorway to a deeper understanding of our humanity. Music helps us feel, heal, understand others and be creative.
Central to experiencing music is music education in our schools.
“Music enhances the education of our children by helping them to make connections and broadening the depth with which they think and feel. If we are to hope for a society of culturally literate people, music must be a vital part of our children’s education.” – Yo-Yo Ma
One of the reasons we started InConcert was to support our local school music program. Please see the NAfME’s resource, “5 Ways to Support Your Music Program,” to learn how you can help support your local music program.
