Free Instrumental Band Program in Meadow Vista
Would you like to help the children in your life thrive? Children that thrive are supported in every area of their lives. What if there was a way to incorporate all four of these areas into one activity? Music is often dismissed as unnecessary or an “extra” activity that is fun but not really missed if it doesn’t make the cut of after-school activities. The reality is that music participation is one of the ways that a child is positively impacted in every one of these four crucial areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
• Intellectual: Music impacts language development, increases spatial-temporal skills, and is known to raise IQ points. It is the only activity that lights up every area of the brain simultaneously.
• Emotional: Music provides an outlet for a wide-range of emotions. Children can learn to be aware of and express how they feel through the language of sound.
• Spiritual: Music impacts every journey in life including one’s chosen spiritual path.
• Physical: Music helps children develop both small and large motor skills through movement, singing, and instrumental practice.
