"Music is such an important part of an academic program, not just fine arts. It's one of the fundamental components in the no child left behind act.” -Lawrence Fisher - Teach 4th grade in a high percentage free/reduced lunch school in North Carolina.

Recent research has found that music uses both sides of the brain, a fact that makes it valuable in all areas of development. Music affects the growth of a child’s brain academically, emotionally, and physically. A recent study from the University of California found that music trains the brain for higher forms of thinking. I integrate various types of music into our school day. In the morning I play soothing relaxing music and during independent work activities I select invigerating stimulating music. Our classroom was supplied with a 1990 Tape/CD player with crackly speakers.

If we had an MP3 player, I would be able to sort and categorize our music by genre, speed, and composer. My students would receive a wonderful mix of music that is suited for the activity we are pursuing.

You will make it possible for all of my students to be exposed to a variety of stimulating and relaxing music.
