I'm all for music advocacy!
October is here and it is National Arts & Humanities Month. It was established in 1993 and is celebrated every October in the United States. It was initiated to encourage Americans to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives, and to begin a lifelong habit of participation in the arts and humanities. It has become the nation's largest collective annual celebration of the arts and humanities.
In a study of Arts and Dropout prevention: "In a 2016 study of schools across Philadelphia (Holochwost et al., 2016), the authors found that younger students (9 years of age on average) who participated in a music program increased their tolerance for the perspectives of others, increased their growth mindset, and boosted their academic goal orientation more than other age groups." - The Arts and Dropout Prevention: The Power of Arts to Engage - Kimberely Brown, Phd - Dropout Provention Center/Network, Clemson University
