Save Amherst High Music and Performing Arts/Mr. Messier sign now

We, The Undersigned, have this to say on the termination of Mr. Messier's position at ARHS:

Amherst Regional High School has, for years now, has prided itself for its lovely assortment of elective classes most of which, have been well taught and well managed. No exception to this is the schools Music and Performing Arts department.

On Friday, February 9th, it became apparent to many, that Brian Messier, teacher of Wind Ensemble, Symphony Band, Jazz Workshop, Steel Drum, and elementary school bands, was cut due to the recent state budget cuts. This means as of now, he will not be teaching during the 2007-2008 school year.

What does this mean for the school music department? This is the pressing question for anyone who has been, is, and would be involved in this important part of our school. Messier is an inspiring and talented teacher, as anyone who has been in one of his ensembles should know. He is also a really good guy/friend/father figure/etc. Basically, the department without Messier would be comparable to sleeping on dirt.

The time is now to take critical action to fix our music program. Write letters to the town, the newspaper, or to each other. Organize! Persuade people to vote for the override. Persuade the town to put it on the March ballot. No one can properly emphasize what Messier has brought to and continues to bring to the program.
