Re: [Harp-L] Re: College music program on harmonica


I think that one effective approach would be to lobby the legislature and
board of education of each state.  Could SPAH collect data on meetings
relevant to our cause by such boards and bodies, maintaining such a data
base with the ability to match up opportunities with available
representatives who would attend meetings and speak on behalf of the
S.P.A.H. membership? ...for the purpose of promoting the harmonica for
acceptance into the public school music and arts curricula?

Am I thinking too "pie in the sky" or does anybody agree that this really
can be done especially with modern electronic resources?

Maybe it's time to give this a try?
