Using Music helps to make your learning environment much more student-friendly.
It helps to create a non-threatening supportive learning community where discipline
problems will improve. As you use music in your curriculum you make your work more
fun, interesting, relaxing and MORE MEMORABLE.
Incorporating music into the curriculum is not about school efficiency but about
effectiveness. It’s about nourishing the learners brain for the long haul which
may, in the end, simply develop better citizens for tomorrow.
“Quite simply, music is good for you– physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
It can strengthen the mind, unlock the creative spirit, and, miraculously, even
heal the body.”
Don Campbell (The Mozart Effect)
