Music learning =Lifeskills
Music touches the soul, enables us to learn through our senses, and lifts our spirits. Sultry melodies and driving beats inspire our bodies to motion. The benefits of a comprehensive music education should be made available for all and not just a privileged few. In the spirit of El Sistema, we Sing, we Play, and we Strive!
Music and the arts are a natural teacher for many of the life skills and habits of mind that make us successful in life. Children who learn music develop a set of skills that serve them for the entire lifespan:
- Confidence, Commitment, Communication skills, Creativity, Collaboration
- Passion, Problem-solving, Physical dexterity, Perseverance
- Focus, Finesse, and FUN!
