Plato once said that music "is a more potent instrument than any other form of education". A study from the University of California supported the Greek philosopher's theory, demonstrating that music trains the brain for higher forms of thinking.

Despite the proven power of music, looming cuts to the federal education budget are forcing schools across the nation to make tough decisions about program funding; sadly, many are opting to cut the arts, especially music. Art is essential to life unless we are to become a nation of barbarians. Let us protect the arts and especially music, our universal language of the heart and soul.

Music makes our hearts merry! Music gives us joy in sorrow, hope in crisis, peace in chaos, delight in dispair, love in lonliness...music is the expression of the soul, our voice with or without lyrics.

Music is important to reading, math, social studies, and science...learning to play an instrument is all of this rollled into one academia...Music should always be a part of a student's life...China has amazingly talented students as young as 5 years old playing instruments, we, the United States of America, can help our children by offering SO MUCH MORE TO THEM in our schools...we owe this gift to them...
