Oh, the places you’ll go…
Daylight is ending earlier, teachers are brushing off their textbooks, students are lacing up their shoes – school is right around the corner! This time of year can seem overwhelming, and it passes in the blink of an eye – but it is also one of the most exciting times of the year. As students pick and choose their activities, we wanted to take a moment and share with you the benefits of music education and how lessons and group classes can complement their school work.
Music lessons are known and proven to improve academic skills, develop physical skills, cultivate social skills, refine discipline and patience, boost self-esteem, and introduce those taking the lessons to new cultures. Even just the addition of listening to soothing, classical music while studying can help students focus on their schoolwork!
As the summer vacation excitement comes to a close, and school mornings come bright and early, we want to share with you an excellent reminder from Dr. Seuss:
You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
To the teachers and students of Lincoln and beyond, from all of us at Harris Academy of the Arts, have a fantastic school year!
