“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.
