Parents often don't fully understand the value that the K-6 general music program brings to their child's education. Not because they aren't interested. Instead, it's because the very school systems that offer that programs miss the rich rewards that music education offers. Therefore, they aren't able to communicate it themselves.
If you're interested in sharing these rich rewards, and supporting this vital part of your child's curriculum, please feel free to print the following and share it with you child's music teacher. They might be interested in printing it in their next music concert program.
Music appeals to our senses and draws out interaction. Music excites us, soothes us, and brings us joy. The goal of music education should be to stimulate an aesthetic experience in the learner by introducing a variety of styles that bring about an understanding of music.
Congratulations parents for supporting music in your school!
