Music for All
DeHoff, Beth
Exceptional Parent, v40 n3 p27-29 Mar 2010
In this article, two marching band students from 2009 Bands of America Grand National Championship finalist bands show how students of all abilities benefit from involvement in band and music. (Bands of America is a program of Music for All.) Emily Ingram of James Bowie High School, Texas, and Cameron McCanless of Avon High School, Indiana, have disabilities. And each, like all people, has abilities. These students represent two of the top marching bands in the country, including the Grand National Champion. Because their directors took a chance on them, they have contributed to their band programs' success, both on the field and in the lives of the students they perform with. They are the perfect examples of the mission of Music for All--to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all. Emily and Cam are just two of many students with disabilities across the country who succeed in music programs. Many more are playing in bands, singing in choirs, and helping with props and other aspects of their schools' music programs. All are important people in their bands or choirs. Each one makes a contribution toward letting the world know that music really is for all.
