Save the Music Program

Save the Date, Save Our Music Program – Saturday, Oct. 22nd, 2016. 11AM – 6PM

We need you! Please help us raise $16k so that every student from Kindergarten to 6th grade can have music education at Dorris Place.



Thank you for your generous contribution and supporting music education for the students of Dorris Place Elementary. The arts serve as a crucial component to a complete education and are proven to increase student academic achievement, open doors of opportunity, scholarships, and so far in our experience, a world never imagined possible. Young people who consistently participate in comprehensive, sequential, and rigorous music programs:

  • are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement
  • are 3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance
  • increase verbal memory, visual processing, math skills
  • score 22% higher in Elglish and 20% better in Math than students without music programs

The children are at a critical stage in their cognitive and creative development. Empowering them with woodwinds, ukuleles, violins, violas, and cellos is very powerful. Thank you so much for your support and sharing our vision and goal to return essential programs to public education.
