LEGISLATION & EDUCATION

MUSIC & THE MIND

Unused FCC Authority |

Since 1984 the FCC has had the power to enforce US Criminal Code Title 19, Section 1464 which reads. "Whoever utters any obscene, indecent, or profane language by means of radio communication shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than 2 years or both."

 

Can I Make a Difference? |

Ellis Marsalis, local Jazz legend and professor, wrote a letter to the editor after the Orleans Parish School Board cut music teachers out of its strained budget. "The recent cuts inflicted on the arts, music and libraries in our school system represent the mistaken notion that these programs are less important than math or science. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is through the arts that the left brain meets the right brain. Music instruction, in particular, raises math scores. They changed their minds and restored 43 itinerant music teacher jobs. The Times Picayune March 4, 1994


 

Need for Arts Curriculum |

For 50+ years, researchers have been establishing the importance and value of music and fine arts education for children. During the past 20 years, research in the neurological and cognitive sciences has indicated ways to improve teaching and learning. Optimal instructional methods and programs integrate neurological functions, generate positive emotional feelings and attitudes, provide multi-century enriched environment, and at adverse learning styles and multiple intelligences. Such instructional programs effectively incorporate the arts. A b correlation exists between music and arts based learning and enhanced student achievement. In into reading, writing, computing and listening as instructional tools, students can and to learn through images, textures, rhythm, color, making models, role-playing, movement, sculpting, painting, the signing, the singing and playing instruments. From neurologist and scientists concerned primarily with the functions of the brain to Dr. Howard Gardner and his period of multiple intelligences researchers assert with rear to accomplish genuine educational reforms the must establish music and the other arts as part of our basic, core curriculum, and incorporate and into it every area of the total curriculum.
