Hook/attention grabber: Story about how budgets are being cut in music programs across the country. • The Big Idea: Music impacts the lives of students, and improves their academic performances, but budgets are still being cut.
Budget Cut (Sarcasm)
• Budget cuts in Music Education are on a high roll since 2008, and expects to increase in years to come. “ Many school systems will have no music specialists serving elementary schools by next year.” (Retrieved by the article: The Consequences of Curtailing Music Education)
Kid’s life without music
• Why should your audience listen to you? Explain your ethos (credibility). My audience should listen to me because I have extreme passion of music, and has helped overcome my learning disability and exceeded academically.
Call to Adventure: Children can live a more fulfilling life by bringing back music programs, and use that as their prerequisite for their curriculum.
¥ Preview the three main points that will support your big idea:
Bringing back Music Programs 1) Promote a non-profit concert in your city that needs a music program; 2) Develop a fundraiser everywhere for helping buy instruments for kids; and 3) Help other cities and towns that needs Music Programs.
Supporting Point One: Promote a concert in your city that needs a music program • Having a community chorus, or band concert can promote buzz about the huge impact of music to their ears.
¥ Several recent studies suggest that the brain processes music and language in similar ways, and that training in music may have benefits for language-related skills (retrieved from article: Seven ways music boosts that brain)
Supporting Point Two: Develop a fundraiser everywhere to help buy instruments for kids. ¥ Reusing the big idea by including the benefits of adding music to their programs so that donors will attract.
Supporting Point Three: Helping other cities and towns that need Music Programs. • Networking through fundraiser websites like kickstarter.com would help raise funds for certain cities with poor economy.
Call to Action: Find a city that either you know, or through research that needs a music program in their schools, and connect their school board to an online fundraiser.
We need your help to promote awareness about the true benefits of music in our lives!
