In a time when most public school districts have eliminated school music programs, Irvine’s continues to thrive thanks to community support of IPSF.
IPSF fully funds the primary music program provided to students in kindergarten through third grade. This program provides students with a solid foundation in musical concepts in a fun, supportive environment. IPSF also provides funding for instructional assistants for the fourth-through-sixth grade instrumental music program, enabling a richer learning experience for students.
IPSF works together with the school district to ensure that each child in every school, TK-3rd grade, receives quality music education. Why? Because we know that early exposure to music promotes collaboration and communication skills, creativity, self-expression, leadership, and overall improved academic performance. Music is essential if we want to truly offer a world class and well-rounded education to our students.
