Why Music?

 

I. Music is a Science.

II. Music is Mathematical.

III. Music is a Foreign Language.

IV. Music is History.

V. Music is Physical Education.

VI. Music Develops Insight and Demands Research.

VII. Music is all these things, but most of all, Music is Art.

 

That is why we teach music:

Not because we expect you to major in music

Not because we expect you to play or sing all your life...

 

But so you will be human

So you will recognize beauty

So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world.

 

So you will have something to cling to

So you will have more love, more compassion,

more gentleness, more good -

in short, more Life.

 

Bridging the gap to benefit ALL Newhall School District music students, Music Makers PTA is the Parent Support committee for the Music Education Department in the Newhall School District.

We raise funds to:
  • Purchase instruments
  • Commission new music
  • Fund All District Honor Orchestra
  • Fund instrument repairs
  • Hire professional artists to supplement instruction
  • Contribute funding to music program
  • Sponsor “Featured Artist” program

We strive to give all children in the Newhall School District an opportunity to experience the art of music through a “hands on” program of instruction and guidance. We are a non-profit, parent volunteer organization dedicated to making a music program available to everyone. Our parent volunteers donate their time and talents, and assist in fund raising activities that directly enhance the music education program provided by the NSD. Kindergarten through 2nd grade students benefit from an in-classroom music program, 3rd graders learn music theory and how to play recorders, and 4th through 6th grade students benefit from Chorus and Instrumental Music programs.
