Parent Music Boosters Info

Music Boosters play an integral role in enriching the music education of our students, and in building a music-supportive community within and beyond the walls of Campolindo. Although the Board positions are filled for the current year, we often need volunteers for specific events, such as helping the hospitality hosts manage the post-concert receptions, the Pops Potluck in October, finishing touches for the fantastic jazz dinner dance in February, and so on. We are also hoping this year to make it easier for students and families to coordinate attending together (if they so wish) some of the concerts students attend for the purposes of completing performance reviews. Volunteering as you are able with specific events, and becoming a Board member in the future, are great ways to get more familiar with Campolindo, its student musicians, and their parents and families. If you have questions or are interested in getting involved, please contact Denise Nomura, President.

Why Music? Voices in the Arts – Perspectives on the Importance of the Arts in Education

For more than a decade, intense interest in how the arts stimulate learning has engaged researchers. Their efforts show that the study of music, drama, writing, dance and the visual arts helps excite and reinforce learning in subjects beyond the arts, like math, English and science.  Yet, as budgets shrink, the arts have been withdrawn from many of our schools and classrooms.
We need to change this.  Arts education is not a frill; it is beneficial to every student.
