Bring Orchestra to Scotch Plains Fanwood Schools

Learning an instrument can be one of the most rewarding experiences in one's life. It's not only scientifically proven to be beneficial to the brain, but can provide a friendly community as well. Here in Scotch Plains-Fanwood, many people are missing out on the experience just because they aren't provided with the opportunity. Although a band program is offered, the addition of an orchestra would broaden the outreach of music.

Playing an instrument opens up an entirely new world of discovery and friendship. It leads to numerous opportunities for developing leadership, confidence, discipline, and character. An orchestra is also a place where people of similar passions are brought together to create something beautiful.

Although our school district doesn't have an orchestra, the orchestra program has been flourishing in many neighboring schools. Among the top schools in New Jersey, SPF is one of the few lacking in an orchestra program.

The addition of an orchestra in SPF would foster generations of future young musicians to come. More students would participate in school activities through music and music would become a more prominent force in student life, shaping the community in a profound way.

Many of the Scotch Plains-Fanwood students have expressed their interest in learning a new instrument and starting an orchestra. Please sign this petition to make a difference
