“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”
– Victor Hugo
Today it’s common to find news stories addressing school budget shortfalls in which music and art programs are reduced or eliminated entirely. Individual families also struggle and affording a musical instrument and proper training is often out of reach for many Maine youngsters.
As music opportunities are reduced for our children, there is a direct impact on the livelihood of Maine’s music instructors. When new generations of musicians suffer, opportunities to present and view live music performances also dwindle.
