musicThe Carnegie Task Force on Education of Young Adolescents has stated, "The fine arts are part of a basic core curriculum through which all students should be expected to succeed as learners in critical thinking, expressing themselves clearly, and synthesizing subject matter across the disciplines studied."   The fundamental way in which we experience our world and express our selves is through the arts, and arts education develops essential skills and abilities for successful 21st century citizens
