Save The Music
Dedicated to Hamilton High School & LAUSD
Phil Donney, who graduated in 2006 from Hamilton High School’s Music Academy, home to many Jewish students as well as talented students throughout the city, has created this video in the face of huge looming cuts that threaten the very existence of the LAUSD public school Magnet programs, particularly the music programs like Hamilton’s.
Donney’s music video shows students protesting the cuts and is a very moving song and repsentation of why all students need to be encouraged in their creativity. Donney went on to graduate from UC Santa Barbara and will be entering Cal State Northridge’s school of social work in the fall.
