Let the Music Play

                                                           

In too many towns, counties, or cities school districts are cutting music programs. In some cases they are eliminating them altogether. However, very often sports programs are given special consideration. If I had my way, both sports and music programs would have all the funding they needed, and would continue to prosper and grow. But I’m not responsible for making budgets, and I know the school chancellors or whomever is responsible for these decisions face very tough choices. One thing that the residences of the towns or counties etc. could do: stop crying the blues when the school taxes go up. 

In the words of Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Homes: "Taxes are what we pay to have civilized society." https://quoteinvestigator.com Music helps us in so many ways to be civilized. Go to a high school concert. Listen to the young people play and think of how much they worked, most of it after school, to achieve the level of achievement that have.
