I am a true believer that music can make a difference in the life of a child. It stimulates creativity, small and gross motor skills, cooperation, self expression, problem solving and more. It can give children confidence, while being fun and energetic.
I like to use my singing program to teach children about many different things. I have a passion for supplementing their core subjects with songs. Whatever the kids are learning, I try to come up with a song to help with that concept.
Music has a way of helping us with memorization. Who can finish this line? "He's got the whole world __ __ ___? (in his hands). How about "R E S P E C T, Find out what it means to me" Will you ever spell Respect wrong again?
Music can be a powerful tool in learning. I taught my youngest son Jacob to spell his name to the tune of Bingo "J A C O B, J A C O B, J A C O B and Jacob is your nameo" and now his last name with Old Mac Donald "B E A S L E Y that spells Beasley B E A S L E Y, Jacob Beasley" It truly has helped him remember how to spell his name.
I encourage you to find ways to include music in teaching, it really makes a difference.
