Music as a subject is the binding glue for which we learn literacy, numeracy, history, geography, science and more.
Our intuitiveness develops from it; also, the development of our interpersonal skills grow from musically learning and performing in collaborative musical groups learning not only a musical language but also reinforcing our social and community skills.
To save dollars, we are educationally, intellectually, emotionally and socially impoverishing our students.
Music is the saviour of our souls, the freedom of our speech and the reflection of our culture.
Politicians you can save money but you are stealing our personal identities!
