Band Notes

More than ever our society needs creative problem-solvers. Music training stretches these creative, right-brained 'muscles'. It is no wonder that current research continues to demonstrate that success in music translates to success in life.

"On the 1999 SAT [college admissions test], music students continued to outperform their non-arts peers, scoring 61 points higher on the verbal [literacy] portion and 42 points higher on the math [numeracy] portion of the exam."

Steven M. Demorest & Steven J. Morrison, "Does Music Make you Smarter?" Music Educators Journal, Sept., 2000.

Please welcome Ms. McArthur to our Johnson Area Band team! She will be taking over for Mr. Lewicki as he completes his term contract and officially retires (again!) Thank you Mr. Lewicki and best wishes on your retirement.J
