I can't believe the quality of our Spring Concert CD. It has generated tremendous school and community pride in our music department. We look forward to making it an annual project and also bringing them in to record our Holiday Shows.
--- Mary Jaros, Director of Country Day School

My daughter has been with the music program sine the 4th Grade and what an opportunity to capture the results of all these years on compact disc. At $12, this CD is reasonable and a priceless keepsake that we'll treasure. Thanks MusicMatters.

MusicMatters does all of the recording and production at no cost to us and their quality is excellent. We?ll use them next year to videotape our elementary school's Halloween parade, the Holiday concert, 4&5th grade play, and graduation.

Dose music really matter?

We have added other words of wisdom and quotes from our inspirational leaders who have helped to encourage others to dedicate themselves toward music education.

Does Music Education Really Matter?

"Recent studies prove music programs help young people's math and reading skills. Attendance and teamwork also improve. I believe all students should have the opportunity to take part in music programs. Let's all do what we can to save music."
- President Bill Clinton

"While most of us will never sing like Aretha Franklin or Celine Dion, an education in the arts can help all of us reach our individual dreams. Research now shows that music education not only lifts our children's hearts, but also dramatically increases their abstract reasoning, spatial skills and their scores on math and verbal exams. At a time when too many arts education programs are the first to be cut and the last to be added, all of us must send a clear message. When it comes igniting our children's ability to learn and imagine, the arts must be just as central to our children's education as the three R's."

- Hillary Rodnam Clinton

"I believe education in music, theater, dance, and the visual arts is one of the most creative ways we have to find the gold that is buried just underneath the surface."

- Richard W. Riley, W.S. Secretary of Education

"I believe that as a part of the educational process, each child should have access to a music education program. That is part of a well-rounded education and can provide so much joy, now and in the future."

- Rudolph Giuliani, Mayor, City of New York

Arts education and science education should not be 'bargained off against one another' because the two are connected by 'natural links': teamwork, design, innovation, communication, thinking critically and developing discipline. It is not a question of science or the arts but of how to bring both together in the classroom.

-Shirley Malcom, American Association for the Advancement of Science

"I like music because when we are playing our instruments, everybody is the same and we are all together. There is no rich or poor, cool or not cool, black or white. It makes me feel good."

- Joey Baxter, student, age
