Music and art are a big part of our lives, and should not be cut on behalf of a loss of money, especially since the public hasn't even approved the budget for next year yet.

      Music is an integral part of the learning process. Exposure to music should happen at an early age, and frequently, definitely more than just once every 10 days which is what would happen if the budget is cut with respect to the elementary school program. The exposure to music should be consistent throughout the school program, into highschool as well. All aspects of music should be represented. This area, and many others have seen tremendous growth and progress in the appreciation of orchestra. It is important that this continues with strong, competent leadership in this area by talented young professionals. Fostering growth in music not only helps the arts, but it help the other academic areas as well.

      Music is the basis of all things mathematical and scientific. Without music there is no Science...without science we lag behind every other developing country.

      The musical education I got at BHS changed my life forever in the best possible way. Studies have shown for decades why art is essential to children's learning capabilities and to enhancing their lives. Please don't rob Binghamton's kids of the same wonderful opportunities and enhancements I and hundreds of others have had.
