RMS Music Hosts JazzReach Metta Quintet, RMS Auditorium, Oct 2022.

Music Education Funding

The Music Director and the Music Boosters would like to share an Election Day message with the RMS Community. For your consideration on CA Proposition 28: ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR ARTS AND MUSIC EDUCATION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. INITIATIVE STATUTE.

“Arts Education is a crucial and integral part of the social, emotional and cognitive development of a child. It is a requirement for proper brain development, and for comprehensive education for young minds, as it provides tools that will last a lifetime. 

Currently, funding for Arts Education in K-12 public schools is NOT SUFFICIENT and must be increased to meet the needs of all children.  Vote YES on Prop 28 to have the state release the funds to provide comprehensive arts education for all K-12 public schools in California.

A complete education that includes arts education generates productive members of tomorrow’s society. Vote YES on Prop 28.”  

Thank you for considering,

Music Director & Music Boosters.


With the combined efforts of Mr. EK and the Music Boosters, the RMS Music program has been awarded TWO grants this month.

These awards will go towards upgrading the Music Lab as well as acquiring technology and equipment to enhance the Digital Music curriculum and student experience.

We continue to seek opportunities to grow RMS Music and increase music education accessibility to more students. Specifically, we hope to upgrade from outdated Music Lab computers in order to keep up with the ever-changing developments in music composition. This project entails funding of $20,000+ to modify/replace 30 student computers. If you have corporate and charitable connections who would like to join you and the Music Boosters in this venture, please contact roofriendsmusicboosters@gmail.com.
