MusicAlliance is a non-profit 501c3 music education & performing arts organization founded in 2004 and based in Mentor, Ohio which provides school band programs for 30 schools throughout the Cleveland metropolitan area with a staff of 12 teachers and which also operates honor band programs that include both non-public and public school students and a new band program for homeschooled students.  We believe that studying a musical instrument has many far reaching benefits which play an essential role in the creative, social, emotional, and cognitive development of children.   Participation in band helps to cultivate a greater love, appreciation, and understanding of music - one of humanity's oldest art forms and means of expression. Learning to make music in a school band program fosters a sense of belonging and accomplishment while also promoting self-esteem, self-confidence, self-expression, self-discipline, teamwork, and organizational skills. Scientific research into the effects of studying music continue to produce new data about music's relationship to brainpower and academic success.  University research studies have shown that students who participate in instrumental music score significantly higher than their non-band peers in standardized tests (such as the S.A.T.).  Furthermore, significant correlations have been found between the number of years of instrumental music instruction and academic achievement in math, science, and language arts.*

  

 When you consider the positive force that music education can be in the lives of both children and adults,

we think you will agree that Music is Instrumental to a Sound Education!

Help Support MusicAlliance by using GoodSearch.com (powered by Yahoo!) as your search engine and by doing your online shopping through GoodShop.

Go to www.goodsearch.com/choosecause  then type our name, MusicAlliance, into the search box, and follow the instructions.


Please make sure that you type MusicAlliance as one word (do not put a space between Music and Alliance), otherwise it will have trouble finding us.   After you select our organization, and register with GoodSearch, GoodSearch will make a donation to MusicAlliance for each search you do.


You can also help MusicAlliance through online shopping, by going to www.goodsearch.com (after following the directions listed above), and clicking on the “GoodShop” tab at the top of the webpage.  GoodShop is an online shopping mall that works with more than 2,800 retailers.  You can also find hundreds and thousands of discount coupons and other offers. The more you shop, the more you can earn for MusicAlliance.  Shopping through GoodShop is exactly the same as going to the retailer website directly – you receive the same prices and level of service, and the retailers still handle order processing, shipping, and returns, but by shopping those retailers through the GoodShop website, our organization is given a donation based on a percentage of each purchase you make.


Funds raised will be used to help keep our band program tuition as low as possible.  Therefore by helping MusicAlliance, band parents can help themselves also.  If our band families utilize GoodSearch and GoodShop to benefit MusicAlliance, it can bring in a significant amount of money to put towards controlling band program tuition costs while also being a time-saving and gas-saving convenience for busy families.
