I have an issue I would like to address about music programs in schools. Many do not have them, and many do not have very good ones.
I'm not saying we need to make high school musical a reality, but we need to start giving children a better education.
Music programs, like band or orchestra, have several benefits that last for a lifetime.
Music, Art, Language, and Gifted Programs are being cut in schools because of a lack of funding.
After-school music programs like El Sistema in OKC help students build a community.
Music is a pathway that increases students learning ability and emotional development.
