I learned of Music in the Schools through a radio announcement. The organization was holding a instrument drive. Locals were asked to drop off unused musical instruments for our public school youth (after they were repaired free of charge by a music shop). Music in the Schools is providing a service greatly needed, especially in this time of budget cuts in arts education.

I am a director of an arts education advocacy organization in town and look forward to working with Music in the Schools.

Our drum line has participated in the Music In The Schools Mariachi and Drumline competition for two years. The event was well organized and allowed a great venue for our drum line to present their talent to the city of San Antonio. The enjoyment my students express by performing at this event cannot be understated. We look forward to participating in this event in the future as well as supporting Music In The Schools whenever we can.

Find more funds to further the cause of Music In The Schools so that more events and/or assistance can be given to area students involved with music programs in their schools.

The Edgewood Fine Arts Academy Mariachi was selected to perform at the Sunset Station in the US ARMY and MUSIC IN THE SCHOOLS Mariachi and Drum Corp Contest on Friday January 7, 2011 at 6:00 PM. We arrived at 4:00 PM and were escorted to have a dinner lunch of delicious turkey and cheese sandwiches with chips and drinks. After that we were escorted to see the US ARMY exhibits in front of the Alamodome. The students all got free backpacks, caps, pedometers, and water bottles. Some students even climbed the rock wall, rode the helicopter simulators and did pushups for a football prize. Then it was time to get dressed for the contest. We were number 5 in the line up. We got on stage and performed our 3 songs. We also got to see the other groups perform. Although we came in last we were vey appreciative to the people of Music in the Schools and the US Army because we had a GREAT time! All the people with Music in the Schools and the US Army were super friendly and helpful to us. We look forward to participate again next year!

I would like to have a Certificate of Participation to hang or diplay in our school. While we took pictures a certificate shows we were at the event.
