Memorial Park Middle School Keeping Music Alive in the Classroom
This March marks the 30th anniversary of Music in Our Schools Month. While Fort Wayne has a great tradition of school music programs, tight budgets and other factors can make it difficult for teachers and students to keep the melodies coming.
Fort Wayne's Memorial Park Middle School and its arts magnet program continue to find creative solutions to keep students playing, and teacher Sarah Beutel is determined to see that the program remains secure.
WBOI's Julia Meek recently talked with Beutel to discuss the challenges and triumphs of keeping music in the classroom.
