(Victor Valley)–HAPPY “MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH” FROM THE LEWIS CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH
While many schools are cutting back on Arts education as a cost-reduction strategy, the Lewis Center for Educational Research in Apple Valley, CA continues to make The Arts a cornerstone of the education we provide our students. For example, we make sure our band students have the opportunity to play not just at school, but in interesting venues such as the concert above at Disneyland.
We have seen amazing growth in our young musicians, who have distinguished themselves not just on the bandstand, but in the classroom and in the community as well. We agree with Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises President John Sykes, who said, “Music education is critical to the development of this nation’s most important resource – our children.” Play on!
