My students are very energetic and willing to learn about many different things. Music is an integral part of their culture and life. Most of the students love to listen to music, but don't realize how it is used in their culture. Many of our students do not speak English as a first language. Using music as a language helps to bring them into a common world that everyone understands. The majority of our elementary school is on free or reduced lunch, so they do not have the resources at home to help them to expand on their interests. They are so appreciative of everything that is introduced to them and enjoy life to its fullest.
