I'm signing because I started playing viola in 6th grade in my public school program. My music education in school was one of the most transformational experiences of my life. It gave me confidence, work ethic, goal-setting skills, problem-solving, communication skills, and a wealth of other riches.

I now teach high school string orchestra and get to see music's energizing and transformative capabilities every day in the lives of my students.

I am a music teacher at the elementary level. I have seen the impact of how eliminating music from the young minds have changed their development. Music and other fine arts need to be included so we provide the best possible and well-rounded education possible. Please join everyone of us to help keep music and other fine arts in our youth's every day educational experience.
