A Classical Crisis

This project is a digital presentation and magazine on the value of music education in public schools. With cutbacks in funding for education, arts programs such as orchestra or band are often the first to face budget restrictions or be eliminated altogether. Many schools and administrators deem arts programs as less essential to a student’s education because they do not directly teach core subjects such as math, science or reading. This project explores why reducing or eliminating funding for arts programs is ultimately detrimental to students.
