The 3rd grade students at our school are gearing up for their performance at the Babcock Ranch Annual Holiday Tree Lighting. This will be the first time third graders will have the opportunity to take the stage at this event, and we have great things planned! Our students will be learning how to work together as an ensemble while boosting their auditory skills, stimulating their brains, enhancing gross coordination skills, and improving communication skills by learning how to play the hand bells! Music is shown to lead to language development and increase verbal recall. As students develop higher language and social skills, they become well rounded and benefit from the intrinsic benefits of learning music. They become disciplined, learn a skill, become part of a community they can be proud of, manage performance and the related anxiety, and learn interpersonal skills like cooperation, sharing, and compromise.
