The 11 instrumental teachers with the Bakersfield City School District have embarked upon a barnstorming tour for the next two weeks to promote music education, according to Michael Stone, visual and performing arts department coordinator for BCSD.

“The Music In Our Schools Week assemblies are an annual event where we show the children in our elementary schools the instruments of the orchestra and give them information about how to sign up to be in our music classes,” Stone said. “We call it, affectionately, ‘the road show.’”

Stone and the team know how important it is to engage students in music studies, which the district introduces all students to with its third-grade lesson plan featuring recorders. In fourth, fifth and sixth grade, any student can study an instrument, Stone said, and if students don’t have access to one, the district has them available.
