Do you care about kids, instrumental music, or education?

Friday, January 6, 2017

The Shoreline Schools Music4Life Booster Club wants YOU if you care about kids, instrumental music or education.

“Interest in any of the three areas qualifies a person for the Booster Club,” says leader Ken Noreen. 
“Last year (2015-16), Music4Life provided 22 musical instruments to Shoreline Schools valued at $20,113. During the first three months, we’ve already provided 16 instruments valued at $9,400, so we’re likely to blow right past last year’s total.

Music4Life provides ready-to-play musical instruments to participating schools for students in need. School districts include Shoreline, Edmonds, Everett, Highline, Mukilteo and Seattle.

“It takes work,” Noreen says. “We have big and small tasks and operate on the principle that ‘many hands make light work.’”

He says this is important because research now shows that kids who participate in instrumental music programs tend to do better in math, science, history, literature, international languages, reading, writing, even in computer science, in addition to what it teaches in terms of teamwork and self-discipline.

The work of the Shoreline Music4Life Booster Club makes it possible for all students to participate, if they wish.
