Alhambra Unified implements new K-3 music program

The Alhambra Unified School District began in October a new music instruction program for students in kindergarten through third grade, according to a press release from the Alhambra Educational Foundation (AEF). All K-3 students in the district will receive up to 16 music lessons in their classrooms during the 2014-15 school year.

Three new music instructors are traveling to half the district's 13 elementary schools teaching rhythm, harmony, melody, singing, and various musical instruments. The program will rotate to the other half in February 2015 and run through May.

The program is fully funded by AEF, a nonprofit organization and the district's fundraising partner. “We are so excited to be able to provide this program to our AUSD students,” said AEF Executive Director Sheryl MacPhee. “The parents, teachers, principals, and most importantly, our students, are thrilled and energized to have this music curriculum a part of the AUSD educational program, and we are so grateful to our generous donors who have helped make this program a reality.”

AEF is raising funds to continue the program in the 2015-16 school year, with a target fundraising goal of $300,000 by July 31, 2015. All proceeds from AEF’s fundraising efforts, including the annual Service to Education gala dinner and the Taste of Alhambra, benefit the district.
