The Desert Wind Saxophone Quartet is a Client Member of the newly
Arts Education 'Special Note'
The arts are seen as inclusive and democratic because each child can
discover his or her own avenue of learning, expression, and discovery. Music lessons have
shown to improve a child's performance in school, and students with coursework/experience
in music performance scored 51 points higher on the verbal portion on the SAT and 39
points higher on the math portion of the SAT than students with no coursework or
experience in the arts.
