My best memories of school are those related to participating in orchestra and marching band. Part of the experience included travels to various states and Canada to perform. Arts are a huge reason for student motivation to come to school and the skills required to become a musician help develop parts of the brain used for math. I as thewriter at wonder if older readers can truly understand how the limitations of funding and emphasis on standardized test scores have robbed our current students of so much in public education.
