Music and Fine Arts are a part of and has been a significant portion of every culture’s educational system for thousands of years.  There is a biological basis for music being an important part of human experience.  Music and the Arts surround daily life in our present day culture.  Most present day artists and musicians acquired their interests during public school Fine Arts classes. 

 

“Education without Fine Arts is fundamentally impoverished and subsequently leads to an impoverished society.”  (quoted from the Florida Music Educators Association)
