There's nothing like playing music to make me feel alive. According to music professor Dr. Anita Collins, "When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout." Studying music develops skills in listening, reading, self-expression, and creativity.
You can celebrate that creativity in March during Music in Our Schools Month. Embrace the benefits of music by engaging children in a discussion about what music means to them.
