LISTEN – A Documentary on the Importance of Music Education

“Listen” explores the importance of keeping music education in public schools. It has been documented that music assists students in learning, relieving stress, and has other benefits.

But a 2010 study conducted by the Arizona Department of Education revealed that 50 percent of public schools surveyed gave a budget of $0 to arts education. 75 percent of schools that did allocate money spent less than $1 per student per year.

With funding these programs being a major predicament in the Arizona budget, “Listen” also explores alternatives to expensive traditional marching band and orchestra programs that still give students important life skills.
