Train to be a Music for Minors docent
Submitted By Carol Zilli
Music for Minors II (MFMII) recently sponsored a concert at Harbor Light in Fremont featuring award-winning childrenÕs songwriter and recording artist Charlotte Diamond. Now in her 32nd year of performing, she got an incredible reaction from the youthful audience that reminded everyone just how important music is to children.
That concert was the non-profitÕs main fundraiser for the year. Proceeds will help support the MFMII volunteer docents to bring music to classrooms across the Tri-City area as well as Castro Valley, Pleasanton, and Dublin. MFMII exists because we canÕt wait for slashed arts funding to be restored; children are being denied the music experience they deserve right now.
Research verifies that music integrates the brain and creates neuronal bridges that aid learning. Despite such discoveries, there are still too many children who donÕt have music in their classrooms. Becoming an MFMII docent is one of the most effective actions you can take to remedy the problem.
The annual fall training class to become a docent begins in September. Visit www.musicforminors2.org or call (510) 733-1189 to learn more about MFMIIÕs 28 years of keeping music alive, both in and out of the classroom. Sign up now to be a part of this fun and life-changing program.
