CHILDRENS MUSIC FOUNDATION INC
January 25, 2011
Kudos to the Children's Music Foundation! Music is truly the universal language and makes the world go'round. The work of CMF is devoted to providing all Kindergarten and first teachers an affordable music curriculum at a time when music funding to schools has been slashed all across the country. Extensive research has documented the direct link between young children participating in music and their academic achievement in other areas. Of equal socio-cultural importance is the relationship between music education and the acquisition of performance skills, the ability to collaborate, the opportunity to learn about diverse cultural backgrounds. The work of the Children's Music Foundation represents the commitment to keeping music alive for children everywhere.
