MAC Corner: The Reasons Students Stay with Music

Now that the school year has started, it’s not too early to remember recruiting and retention. Here are the reasons students stay with music.

“The rehabilitative effect of music is undeniable, it’s amazing and incredibly moving what it does for all sorts of people."
