    All research generated is original, providing accuracy and dependence

    While music does not directly solve a problem, it does provide for a need
    Music creates jobs, increases flow of finances and allows artists to express themselves and their opinions
  • 9. Connection
    What links these needs to this specific organization is the programs
    The education program provides instruction for young, inexperienced talent
    The research program creates jobs through specially designated positions as well as performing and other musical careers
    The policy/advocacy program then gains attention and coverage for each group

    This particular organization promotes the use of critical thinking through research, employing purposeful reflective judgment by being consistently informedand open minded.
    Critical Reading
    Use of critical reading skills is also employed by the group in forms of reading sheet music, thinking about thinking while reading and the study of information that has been processed.

    To engage in Critical Action the FMC makes decisions, achieves massive breakthroughs and applies new concepts all for the sake of music’s role in society.
