Music everywhere….

Music Saves Education is the belief thatthe arts are essential to engaging children in a public school community.    Academic achievement and “buy in” to learning happens when students have a well developed sense of place and purpose.  Its doesn’t take an expert to understand that learning happens when students care.  Singing, dancing, creating visual art and just generally participating in positive and fun large group synchronistic activities makes kids want to learn.   In great schools, music is not confined to the music room or a performance, it is a part of every day life, in daily or weekly traditions, and part of core academics.
