The Global Language – MUSIC
Hello Dublin High School Instrumental Music Program PARENTS / LEGAL GUARDIANS:
Traditionally, the holidays are filled with music. Can you imagine the December festivities accompanied by silence (sure has been a great December 5th, 2016 with that super concert (smile)? Let us take a moment to recognize and appreciate a communication that transcends all religious, racial, political and economic barriers: the artistic language of MUSIC.
Our world is shrinking. The mere flip of a computer switch puts us in contact with anyone … anywhere. Geographical barriers no longer isolate us from our global neighbors. We are challenged to find a common ground for mutual understanding. There is only one language that embraces everyone: MUSIC. If we want our students to have a world-class education, then we must offer them world-class music instruction.
With the new millennium it is imperative that we pledge to establish a harmonious culture of our children. Most certainly tomorrow’s world will be a reflection of today’s choices and decisions. Music must be a mainstay of our schools, for it answers the important questions of who we are as well as why are.
In the spirit of giving, please accept our sincerest gratitude for your support of music; not just for the music program at Dublin High School., but music throughout our community, our state and our nation. Together we can make a difference. Together we are making a difference. Your son / daughter and all the members of our musical family are the benefactors.
Best wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season are extended to you and yours. Let us begin the New Year with a renewed commitment to music in our schools. Through music our children are allowed to live a rich life filled with expression, appreciation and creative growth.
MAKE A JOYFUL SOUND!
