From a selfish point of view-music is one of the passions in my life. I think of the teachers who "scarred" me in a positive way-Rocco Patierno, Robert Simpson, Richard Lukas, Mr Anderson-what they gave me I live everyday. Don't let this influence be denied to our children.

The school music program is so important and wonderful for children! It is hard to believe that eliminating this program, and any of the arts from our schools is actually under consideration. As we all know, there is huge waste in money throughout our federal government. Please find another place to make budget cuts - not here! Save the school music program, and the arts, for our children! In these terribly tough times for so many families, the joy and release that kids get from these programs it is more important than ever before!

I remember how excited I was to go to music class after a long morning of reading and writing..Listening to songs and singing not only helped me express myself, it helped the day go by much faster...What a fine way for our children to showcase their talents. To learn about an art that has always been a part of history, created by GOD by which HE HIMSELF is surrounded; I pray that we at least keep that in our schools... I believe that HE created music as a way to communicate as well as enjoy. Music needs to stay in the schools.

The arts help keep us human. Why is this even an issue? The idea of cutting music programs is grating to my nerves.

I have been surrounded by music all my life accapella choir most my life in grammer school , jr. high and high school.. I enjoyed music more than anything.. It made me happy and taught me so much. gave me courage to perform in front of a crowd... As an adult through my children who are current music students I see the work from grammer school to highschool how long and hard the kids dedicate to the art of music... They are amazing! I have a 12 year old flute player , sits 1st chair honor...

I have a 12 year old flute player , sits 1st chair honor band for all of san bernadino county and a 15 year old trumpet player...she plays 1st chair trumpet music... concert , symphonic , pep and marching band... Both of my girls learned all of this music ability from our schools in hesperia unified school districts music programs! It would be a crying shame to take all of this away from the kids... The children start learning in grammer school , get the foundation of music and keep working their way up till they get to where they want to be as a musician... My children having their foundation of musical ability taught in school walked up to the piano and just began to play.... That was amazing to me! As a booster mom for music I see the music programs struggle due to funding... please everyone give back to music... It is the most beautiful thing in the world! Please continue to fund music for the children of our future!

Numerous studies have shown that students who are taught the Creative Arts score much higer on all other subjects such as math, science, etc. Too bad the IDIOTS in power don't want to listen.
