MUSIC EDUCATION

At the beginning of 2016-17 school year, music education returned to Roseville schools for the first time since 2005! The Roseville City School District Foundation partnered with the District to help make this possible.

 

To date we've donated $140,000 for musical instruments and supplies!

​These donations are possible because students and parents come out and participate in our two annual fundraising events, and our local businesses support these events through sponsorship

 

With our 2018 donation of $25,000, the District was able to purchase the following supplies for our elementary and middle schools: 

  • Ukuleles

  • Percussion sets

  • Boomwhackers

  • Mallets

  • Chimes

  • Digital pianos

  • Alto saxophones

  • Tenor saxophones

  • Flutes

  • Recorders

  • Xylophones

  • Metallophone

  • Wide bar Glockenspiel

  • Bongos

  • Snare cajon

  • Digital music subscriptions

  • Music curriculum, including books and magazines

  • Risers, chair dolly and rug/carpet for music rooms

The Foundation has committed to an ongoing donation of at least $25,000 per year to help the program grow and expand.

Music education is about so much more than learning to sing or play an instrument. Research has shown that children who learn music do better in other subjects. The skills they gain in music help with language development, increased IQ, creativity, spatial-temporal skills, coordination and improved test scores. They also build teamwork and camaraderie with their fellow students and have fun!

Our Foundation raises funds to support music education through our two annual events, the

Run4Roseville Schools held annually on the last Saturday of April, and the Comfort Food Cook-Off, held the last Friday in January. 

 

If you are passionate about music education in our schools, please support us by attending our eventssponsorship or a donation.
