Our Program

Mumford has long encouraged its students to participate in extracurricular activities and our band program has been with us for a long time. Beginning with our 4th grade, students can join the band program and enjoy the magic that is music. Students from grades 4 to 12 participate in the various programs throughout the school year, such as the annual regional meets, where they have the opportunity to earn various awards and recognitions. We will periodically send out notices to these events so come down and see how wonderful music can be!

11 Facts About Music Education

1. Children who study music tend to have larger vocabularies and more advanced reading skills than their peers who do not participate in music lessons.

2. Children with learning disabilities or dyslexia who tend to lose focus with more noise could benefit greatly from music lessons.

3. Music programs are constantly in danger of being cut from shrinking school budgets even though they're proven to improve academics.

4. Children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education.

5. In the past, secondary students who participated in a music group at school reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances (tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs).

6. Schools with music programs have an estimated 90.2% graduation rate and 93.9% attendance rate compared to schools without music education, which average 72.9% graduation and 84.9% attendance.

7. Regardless of socioeconomic status or school district, students (3rd graders) who participate in high-quality music programs score higher on reading and spelling tests.

8. A Stanford study shows that music engages areas of the brain which are involved with paying attention, making predictions and updating events in our memory.

9. Much like expert technical skills, mastery in arts and humanities is closely correlated to a greater understanding of language components.

10. Young children who take music lessons show different brain development and improved memory over the course of a year, compared to children who do not receive musical training.

11. Schools that have music programs have an attendance rate of 93.3% compared to 84.9% in schools without music programs.
