With music education programs being cut at a record rate as school systems scramble to salvage their bottom lines, music teacher, speaker, and author Sharon Burch (www.SharonBurch.com) is available to discuss the multiple adverse implications of eliminating music education from the K-12 curriculum.
Discussion points may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Trend alert: Major corporations are currently recruiting from music and other arts and design schools in an effort to employ out-of-the-box thinkers to gain a leading marketplace edge
- Cutting music education initiatives will actually further damage our global academic standing
- Music is among the only things a child can do to work all parts of the brain, as it causes neuron synapses to fire between all parts.
