Studies have shown that if the students listen to information there is only a 50% retention. If the student repeats the information there is 70% retention.However, if the information is added to music or songs, there is a 90% retention! Please help our students increase their retention by allowing access to much needed musical instruments. Our students love to integrate songs and music into their academic curriculum. It enhances their interest and improves their listening skills and direction following. Many of our students have not had access to musical instruments prior to their exposure in the elementary school setting. My lesson plan will help the students understand that math is necessary in everyday life, even when we don't realize it. By teaching the students to read music, they will not only enjoy performing for their parents and school peers, but they will have a better understanding of the value of math in learning whole, half and quarter notes. The lesson plan will include music theory as well as learning the instrument, giving the student an opportunity for lifelong learning.
