Welcome to Day 4 of the Challenge... I got some questions about joining in on "The Hunt" you can go to their website DoSomething.org or watch this video to see what it's all about. It's not just doing good, you can win prizes to! You can join my team HERE!
 



So today here is The Challenge: 
  • Brainstorm 3 ways to save music education in schools. Share it on Facebook.
  • Snap a picture of a park in your neighborhood that needs beautifying. Send us the park's name and cross streets to enter it into a national map of parks across the country!
  • ULTRA bonus: Take your team to pick up at least 20 pieces of trash around your park.
I pick the MUSIC EDUCATION in Schools because ever since I was in elementary I was in the schools music program, I am just drawn to music. My father gave me my musical inspiration. Even when in my mothers' womb he was in a band and my mom would be sitting in the audience. When in school we never had musical instruments to help us and we almost always had a new music teacher the next year. Then in high school I felt like our school was always the underdog. The spirit of our choir was meak and even though our teacher did not lack in enthusiasm I believe that since we weren't taught music as a daily class, it was the students who were lacking and didn't see the importance of music in our daily lives.

So my idea would be to make music a core class instead of an elective. Maybe like a 30 minute class where we not just listen to music, but learn about past musicians, history, classics, biography and more.

Another way would to use at least 5% of educational grants to go music education. It would be awesome if the band and music departments joined forces, so we wouldn't need much funding because band does get a pretty penny.

Third would to encourage each school to put on a musical. We tried, but never followed through in our high school and middle school. It just ended up as a sorry performance of some show tunes and some waving of our hands.

What would you do to SAVE MUSIC EDUCATION?!
