According to the Journal of Neuroscience, science has shown that when children learn to play music, their brains begin to hear and process sounds that they could not otherwise hear. Discerning between loud and soft, fast and slow, and high and low pitch tunes the ear to the subtleties of sound. This translates into better literacy development; it is the subtlety of sound that differentiates the b from the d. To celebrate the joy of music, students will sing songs and learn musical patterns and rhythms through a variety of objects and instruments. Our music program also exposes children to different musical varieties, allowing children to discuss their feelings and how music evokes emotion. Students will be able to develop a greater appreciation for music, while learning the basics of reading music, becoming familiar with different musical instruments, and even learning some music history!
