"When Words Fail, Music Speaks"

Yesterday, thousands of Kentucky teachers descended on our state capital to fight for school funding. Many programs are being cut from schools including textbooks, professional development, preschool, Family Resource Youth Service Centers, and more. Many universities are also losing funding. Eastern Kentucky University will forced to cut many programs including their marching band and pep band.

"When words fail, music speaks . . ."

I had the pleasure of performing with many music teachers across the state. We communicated through Facebook and met each other for the first time on capital grounds. We found a quiet place under some shade trees to have a quick rehearsal and then used music as our language to speak out for our students. Here are some pictures and videos of the day.



 

"Fund Our Schools"


"Don't Stop Believin'" that our legislators will do the right thing!


"We're Not Gonna Take It"


Our state song, "My Old Kentucky Home"




My sister also snapped this candid of me teaching a fellow teacher how to play ukulele. We will have no funds dedicated to professional development, but there was teacher growth still happening on the capitol grounds!


Music is a powerful tool and I hope our message yesterday was heard loud and clear. I will continue to be an advocate for music, for education, and for my students.
