The Oxnard Music Advocacy Group (OMAG)
Formed in 2011 comprised of educators, musicians and parents aware of the benefits of music and arts as a part of the education of children.

Our mission: The mission of the Oxnard Music Advacocy Group (OMAG) is to assist the Oxnard School District to create, plan, and implement programs of high-quality music instruction for all students in the district. OMAG applies its experience, expertise, and energy to the objective of enhancing the musical, academic, and social/behavioral benefits of music.

Background: Anecdotal and scientific evidence overwhelmingly reaffirm that music education benefits both academic and social development. There is overwhelming statistical evidence that, on average, students who study music at an early age demonstrate higher academic achievement and language proficiency.
By providing information and ideas derived from their multi-faceted experiences in music, general education, and other endeavors, members of OMAG collaborate to offer the following assistance to the Oxnard School District:

  1. Recommend well qualified classroom music specialists
  2. Help select materials appropriate to specific school sites
  3. Contribute towards the cost of music programs
  4. Research grant opportunities for additional funds
  5. Assist Oxnard School District in coordinating with local organizations that support or advocate for music education
  6. Coordinate yearly Music Van visits for all OSD fifth graders.
