“I’ve been involved with High School music programs for the past 12 years, with my own daughter playing the clarinet since the 4th grade. Since my husband, N. Guy Lake, is the current Music Director for Palm Desert High School, I get to see firsthand the dedication, commitment, team building skills and self-growth these kids go through when they are involved in music programs. To watch the new season start with band camp, the masses of kids coming in and complete chaos, to a well-executed marching band show within just a few weeks’ time never stops to amaze me each year” says Laura, “but each year, I also see the funds to these music program shrink to just about nothing.”
Laura Lake feels that music programs at schools are an important aspect in these kids’ lives, studies have proven that kids involved in music, score higher in math and reading, and just do better overall in school. With School Districts tight on funds, we are seeing more and more program being reduced or completely cut. “My dream is that more and more people will see the importance of these schools programs and find ways to help too.”
The Palm Desert High School Music Program has a Non-Profit Booster Group, compiled of parents with kids in the programs that run fundraiser throughout the year to help support the programs at the school. The next event will be their annual gift wrapping for Christmas on located at the Palm Desert Westfield Mall on 12/18, 12/19, 12/22 and 12/23.
