We are the advocates, we are the voices, we are the supporters. We are the Gifted and Talented Music students of Madawaska Middle/High School.

Our blog represents all of which we want to accomplish, being students of the arts. It is focused, but not limited to promoting music and music education in our school and community. Madawaska Middle/High School has seen a serious decline in their arts programs, leaving those who are interested and/ or talented in those areas with no outlet to explore and learn. Therefore, it is our goal to try to promote the arts, including music, to build back the support it once had. It is a big job, but taking small steps, like making a blog to promote the arts of students, can add up over time.

The students behind this blog are the students that will be the voice for all painters, musicians, photographers, artists and more that want to be heard. We plan on using those voices to stir up as much support as we can. To show that the arts are important, the arts do matter, and the arts will play an important role in students lives.

Currently, our blog has numerous articles written by students themselves all about their own personal experiences with music. These articles illustrate how much music means to all of us, and we hope it inspires others so it means something to them as well.

So, our blog may be small, but we have dreams for it to grow into something that will make a difference in our lives as students today, and for many more students to come.

If you want to help us make that difference, come check out our blog at https://instrumentingsuccessbandingtogetherforthearts.wordpress.com/ and spread the word on the importance of music and the arts in education.

This group of students work with Madawaska Middle/High School music educator and Maine Arts Leadership Initiative Teacher Leader Josh Bosse.
