Mission Statement
  • An international effort by
  • The John Entwistle Foundation
  • to develop and manage a musical education,
    donation and
  • training program at libraries whose patrons are
    most likely to be
  • underprivileged children and adults.

Why Music Education?
  • Music lessons have been shown to improve a
    childs performance in school. After eight months
    of keyboard lessons, preschoolers showed a 46
    boost in their spatial IQ, which is crucial for
    higher brain functions such as complex
    mathematics.- Frances Raucher, Ph.D., Gordon
    Shaw, Ph.D. University of California, Irvine
  • Students with coursework/experience in music
    performance and music appreciation scored higher
    on the SAT 53 points higher on the verbal and 39
    points higher on the math for music performance,
    and 61 points higher on the verbal and 42 points
    higher on the math for music appreciation than
    students with no arts participation.- 1999
    National Report Profile of SAT Program Test

Why Music Education?
  • A study of 237 second grade children used piano
    keyboard training and newly designed math
    software to demonstrate improvement in math
    skills. The group scored 27 higher on
    proportional math and fraction tests than
    children that used only the math software.-
    Graziano, Peterson, Shaw, "Enhanced learning of
    proportional math through music training and
    spatial-temporal training, "Neurological
    Research, Vol. 21, March 1999
  • The onset of Alzheimers is delayed by education
    and by intellectually demanding activities like
    music making.
  • - Dr. Zaven Khachaturian, senior medical adviser
    to the Alzheimers Association

Why Music Education?
  • "Musical training can be a big help in getting to
    the top of business and politics, according to
    most congressmen and Chief Executive Officers of
    Fortune 500 companies.  90 of more than 1,000
    CEO's and congressmen interviewed by the
    McDonalds's fast food chain said playing a
    musical instrument as a child helped them develop
    "character and leadership skills."
  • - USA Today
  • A plethora of quotes, studies and research

Why Public Libraries?
  • Americas Public Libraries are the great
    information equalizers - the only place people of
    all ages and backgrounds can find and freely use
    a diversity of resources, along with the expert
    guidance of librarians. There are gt16,000 public
    library locations in the United States alone.
  • Recent reports indicate that "almost 1 in 5
    public library outlets serve a poverty area"
    (16.8 serve poverty areas, 2 serve extreme
    poverty areas). 
  • The American Library Association has found that
    libraries in at least 41 states (82 percent)
    report funding cuts of as much as 50 percent.

Why Public Libraries?
  • Americas libraries are facing the deepest budget
    cuts in history. Across the country, libraries
    are reducing their hours, cutting staff or
    closing their doors drastic measures that were
    not taken even during the Great Depression.
  • Outstanding feedback from ALL libraries and
    library systems polled during research and
    development of program as well as first round of
    fund-raising initiatives.

Responses From Various Libraries/Library Systems
  • Bringing music to the lives of children who
    would not otherwise have the opportunity would be
    a wonderful opportunity for us.
  • I viewed your PPT presentation (updated) and I
    am very impressed with your plan. I look forward
    to hearing from you again.
  • I think a music education program would be a
    tremendous addition to these libraries! 
  • We here at the library have done our best to
    expose our patrons, children and adults, to
    cultural and musical programs. In my opinion when
    a town or county has no cultural center, the
    library has to try and fill that void. A musical
    education program will help us do just that!
