I just got the go ahead from my administration this morning to start looking at the impact of starting band at 5th grade. We currently start band at 6th grade, but they are on block scheduling and the basics just are never really setting for them. Are there any articles advocating the appropriate time for students to start band. I would really like to have some research based material to provide the admin.
Hello James, my name is Jesse with Hyson Music.
Unfortunately, needing to justify the value of music education to administrators is all too common. I would suggest Googling the subject matter. There really is a TON of useful content online that can be of use to you.
Also, the following website can be a great resource as well: http://www.childrensmusicworkshop.com (I have no affiliation with this site, I am simply a visitor).
With that said, a little poking around and I am confident you will find the information you are looking for. Best of luck!
