Thank you to Music Matters for funding the fourth-grade orchestra for the 2016-2017 school year.

Music does matter to students.

According to the website musicmakesuswhole.org, “Music training stimulates nearly every region of the brain, strengthening those regions used for complex math and abstract thinking skills.”

In fact, all arts play a vital role in a child’s development.

Art and music are a universal language.

They are an excellent form of communication bringing together all cultures of our world, including our own community.

Willmar Public Schools has always been well known for its music programs .

I am glad to see efforts are being made for their continuation.

My education experience in the Willmar Public School system was enhanced by my participation in orchestra and choir.

I am glad that WPS students of today have that same opportunity.

Thank you, Music Matters!
