One Signature for One Lesson

Get a free lesson by coming in person this week 3/21-3/26 to sign the petition to get the CA Music & Arts Education in Schools Initiative on the November Ballot. The initiative will provide an additional $800 million to $1 billion every year to arts and music education in California public schools – without raising taxes. SMMC’s passion is to support students and schools with quality music education for 50+ years by providing instruments, private instruction, learning materials, and teaching music programs in local schools. We want to continue to fight for the arts, and you can help! Stop by to sign the #Petition (in person) now until Saturday and we’ll give you a #FREE 30-min lesson on us as a thank you for supporting the arts (new students only). Arts and music education plays a critical role in the education and development of students, but unfortunately has been underfunded in California. Only one in five public schools has a full-time accredited arts or music teacher, and arts education are frequently the first programs to get cut. Study after study has demonstrated the importance of arts and music education in the development of children and their success in school and in life. Arts and music education improves cognitive development, reasoning, and language acquisition; it correlates with higher student achievement in reading and math; and it leads to increased school attendance.
