I don't know how I would have made it through sixth grade through high school without being in the concert band, marching band, and chorale. It is indeed therapy and can lead to a career in music. Where else are our children going to get this education iif not through the public education system? I know my parents could never have paid for private lessons. It is hard to believe it would even be considered as a cut in the education system. Children need art. Music is art.

Music programs in the schools give a culture its soul. Music is not a frill. It is a necessary part of a child's education.

Music is such an integral part of each of our lives individually and within our family, and for so many begins with the introduction in school.

Music is such an integral part of each of our lives individually and within our family, and for so many begins with the introduction in school. Personally I can enthusiastically state in my family Music is integral. my Husband sings in the church choir, the Praise team( along with the tamborine). He played the " flutaphone" (with fond memories) in elem.sch., piano, lessons, choir, in H.S. he played Percussion w/ Concert Band, and Marching Band, and our children followed suit. Our eldest daughter played violin in school, and was ConcertMaster, our middle daughter played flute throughout school, and our youngest sings and plays guitar. I began with piano, recorder, & singing in school, and "Hand Bells" now. Each of these "Music Love stories" began with Music in School. Imagining life with out music and the impact it has every day just w/in my immediate family is just like breathing in and out, in and out, It is LIFE, a Very Important Emotionally Benefitial, Stress and Pain Relieving, Friend Bonding, Praising, and Educationally Unbeatable. This is just the emotional reason I support Music in School!

For those of us who sucked/suck vacuums in sports, and only in select things in academic subjects (English and then History for me), music is a lifesaver. My songs kept me safer in school than I otherwise would have been at one of them. Music was my most regular A. For some people, it still is. Please keep the music!
