Benefits of Music Education

To Support Music Education in Unit 7

Studies show that students who participate in music:

     • have better math and verbal skills

     • are less disruptive in school
​     • have the lowest lifetime rate for substance abuse

The Unity Music Boosters is a group of individuals who meet regularly to support music in Unit 7 schools. **If you have a student in a Unity instrumental or choral group, you are already a member.

How can you become involved?
     • Attend Monthly Booster Meetings
     • Become an officer
     • Support our fundraisers
     • Attend performances at Unit 7 schools
​     • Volunteer
