Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Families:
As a member of the Fenton High School Music Choral Department, your child finally has the opportunity to do what so many successful students have done before them, Be Part of the Music!
We know that for some of you, this will be your first exposure to music education and I wanted to take a brief minute to share some information with you. Below this letter is information regarding our program and the different opportunities it provides for your child.
Music education is more than just singing. It is immersing your child in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each child to use the creative side of his or her brain while, at the same time, learning a foreign language…MUSIC.
All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically outperform their non-musical counterparts. But, more importantly, studies are showing that music students are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drugs and alcohol.
Please keep the calendar of “Important Events” (below) for your reference throughout the year (this is also available in digital format on the webpage as well). As much of these dates could change depending on what the fall looks like we are asking that you mark your calendars, but be as flexible as possible with any necessary changes.
I also encourage you to “get connected” in order to get electronic updates for each class/ensemble. If after reading all of these materials you still have questions, please feel free to contact me at any time using the info listed below.
Every destination starts with a decision to embark on a journey. While I can’t promise that every child will be a musical prodigy, but I can promise they will learn, laugh, and grow along the way.
