Donations: Tracking the Impact

MusicStudents

In this day in age, it is common knowledge that music education is a beneficial activity from a variety of angles. Public school music education activities and private music education activities have the same overall benefits.

In the public school system, funding for new instruments is one of the greatest challenges that all music teachers face. With each new governmental decision, funding is always on the top of the list of needs that might not be met 100% of the time. This challenge is not only a major issue in North America, similar challenges also exist in Europe.

The article below features a music teacher that has created a new mission to help public music programs to find funding for musical instruments by showing the first-hand benefits of music education on the students that all funding decisions ultimately affect. Not only does the music teacher speak of the benefits of music education, he also touches on the importance of having the proper quality of resources available to all students. This is an inspiration to all music teachers!
