Music is therapy for those who are troubled and can't deal with manipulation and bullying. I believe in the healing of music which can give you purpose.

Don't take any more away from our schools. Music is something students can do to express themselves. Support this cause.

supporting this cause is a must! The Arts in a school day is a way of dealing with every day stress, and letting the inner Beauty out, our School System needs more arts not less.

School music programs keep kids in school and constitute one of the most reliable predictors of academic and social success for those who participate in musical ensembles. Wealthy districts will be able to find a way to support school music, so that eliminating public financing of these ensembles will further degrade the quality of education in less affluent districts. Choosing to eliminate these programs would represent the worst false economy imaginable.

It would be unconscionable for any of us to not support this petition! Music is a basic human need, a creation that speaks to us in ways that words cannot.

Jazz choir is really the only thing I remember from High School at this point - it was the most important thing to me at the time. I can't imagine no music in school!
