Just an example folks of the kinds of hidden programs that are lurking 
in the school systems around the country at least in the USA.

Many band leaders proclaim that the schools have no money, yes they do 
especially in California where 80% of our property taxes go to the 
schools.   The administrations are Politicians folks and you have to 
get up early and look for these special pots of money.  They are there, 
  you may have to become creative and come up with some fancy new 
fangdangled description of your musical therapy or ultra educational 
stimuli etc.,  but the money is there.

This VOLUNTEER program sure beats flippin' Burgers and pays better than 
many folks regular jobs.
