Repetition is one of the ways that we learn something well.

Students improve singing on pitch, learn the lyrics and melody better with each repetition.

Students will develop their musicality if you sing, move, play more often!

12 Music is Literacy

Parents, Teachers and Administration:

Music education is important for children.

Whether in class or at home, keep our children singing, playing, moving, listening and creating music!
