“Some people think music education is a privilege, but I think it’s essential to being human.” – Jewel, singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist

  • Dear Parents:

     Your child has the opportunity to do what so many successful students have done before them, Be Part of the Music!

     We know that for some of you, this will be your first exposure to music education and I wanted to take a brief minute to share some information with you.

    Music education is more than just singing in a choir. It is immersing your child in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each child to use the creative side of his brain while, at the same time, learning a foreign language…MUSIC.

     All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically out perform their non-musical counterparts. But, more importantly, studies are showing that music students are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drugs and alcohol.

     Every destination starts with a decision to embark on a journey. Now is the time to start your child in middle school music and Sunnvale is the place to do it. We can’t promise that every child will be a musical prodigy, but we can promise they will learn, laugh, and grow along the way.
