Symphony gift will keep on giving

You can read in today's Tribune an article about the $20,000 gift to area schools from the Prescott POPS Symphony. What a great Christmas present to children who want to learn about music.

In Prescott Valley, Franklin Phonetic School will use its $3,000 gift to buy a baritone horn and the Acorn Montessori School will use $2,828 to start up a music program. Park View Middle School and Canyon View Prep received $1,000 to repair instruments, buy sheet music, and mallets for percussion, and three Humboldt Unified School District middle schools received money for a Fender bass amp, a tenor sax, clarinet and alto sax.

Students who to learn to appreciate music in their youth gain a discipline and enjoyment they will take with them throughout their lives. The benefits of learning about music, and of learning to play an instrument, are so great that music education should be much more than an elective to cast aside when money is tight.

Thanks to the POPS Symphony for recognizing music's importance and for giving students a gift that will continue to grow and give pleasure with the passage of time.
