INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC BOOSTERS
We are an organization of parents,
students, staff, and interested community members, who have come together to
benefit the Springbrook Music Program.
We organize fundraising activities, assist with field trips, music
festivals, competitions, and performances. Our ultimate goal is to build a stronger
Springbrook community through musical enrichment, where all of us are valued
partners in preparing our young people to become responsible, well educated,
well-rounded, productive citizens.
Take a look at
only a few quotes that can be found, illustrating how important music education
is to our next leaders of society:
“It's [music education] terribly important, extremely important --
because when you are a child, you are in a receptive age ... In high schools,
public schools -- that's where they must have the best influence, the first
influence, which will go through their whole life.”
- Eugene Ormandy – conductor of The
“A ten-year study indicates that students who study music achieve higher
test scores, regardless of socioeconomic background.”
- Dr. James Catterall, UCLA.
Music has the power of producing a certain effect on the moral character
of the soul....
- Aristotle - Greek philosopher
