This is great news for every student. The potential is there to meet students needs if it is implemented into the schools around the country. Most schools this is not a problem but some schools still see music as secondary and place lastly in terms of importance. This is detrimental to all learning. So this is a step forward in those school district across the country. School that have already adapted this mindset are miles ahead in every area in their learning. This is exciting news!!!

Music and it's importance at crucial stages in life??? Timing can mean a great deal! Look at this link.

Music class isn't just about teaching music its about the student.

Just another student? ? ? No!. . . No one is just. . . another student or JUST anything.  They are someone! Someone significant!!!

Value? We must value the whole person, to say the least, and research shows that music is an important part of a balanced education.

So. . .  Yes! It is valuable!

Concert Etiquette

by Denise Gagne and Denese Odgaard

 

 

Welcome to our concert - we’re really glad you came.

We will listen carefully - we hope you do the same.

 

Some of us are really small - our voices aren’t too strong.

If you’re really quiet - you’ll still hear - you won’t go wrong.

 

We have a few suggestions to make this fun for all.

Please turn your CELL phones off so they don’t ring inside the hall.

 

If you really have to go, please leave when there’s applause.

You may enter once again - when there is a pause.

 

Save the hoots and hollers for when you’re at the game.

When you’re at a concert, it isn’t quite the same.

 

We hope that you will stay and watch until the very end.

We really will appreciate this - our thanks to you we’ll send!
