“Some people think music education is a privilege, but I think it’s essential to being human.” ~ Jewel – singer, songwriter and instrumentalist
One of the strongest communities of people in SL are musicians and music lovers. Venues such as STARS abound, and the multitude of talented musicians across the grid is amazing. Coming in June, a special event called Music Matters 2017 will be held. Music Matters 2017 is a Second Life music community charity event, and all proceeds from the event benefit the RL charity Spread Music Now.
Music Matters is a group of Second Life performers & music lovers who come together once a year to raise money for children’s music education through Spread Music Now.
EVENT: Music Matters 2017 (MM17)
WHEN: Friday, June 23rd & Saturday, June 24th
WHERE: Second Life = Landmark to be provided later
BENEFITING: Spread Music Now (SMN)
This event is ably coordinated by some amazing and talented people in the SL music world. Coordinating the event is AllieKattz Resident and Carol Greenwood, assisted by SL musician Collin Martin (collinmartin).
WHAT IS SPREAD MUSIC NOW? WHY MUSIC?
SpreadMusicNow believes that by funding music programs that clearly foster an appreciation for music, children will reap the benefits of improved academic performance, awakened creativity, heightened self-esteem, and an overall sense of accomplishment.
Study after study proves that regardless of socioeconomic background, music- making students do better in school than those who have no music involvement. Whether it is improved spatial-temporal reasoning, which is integral to math, or repetition of tunes and melodies, which is integral to verbal memory, learning, playing and creating music benefits children in a myriad of ways.
