Evidence continues to focus on the arts (music) as a vital component in the positive growth of every child. For years we have pointed to the music students as those who have demonstrated a special talent. However, based on extended studies we now know it is the very process of learning music that develops the artistic mind and brings forth the creative potential in all young people. Neuroscientists explain that music is fundamental to our brains and that music communicates the emotions and ideas that are the building blocks of human nature. For this reason, continued membership in our musical family is strongly encouraged.
It is a privilege to have your child as a valued musician in our organization! Thank you for your support of music education at Southwest Middle School. You play an important role in everything we do! My door is always open. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with concerns or ideas you may have.
