I use drumming, recorders, singing and playing instruments with my students.  There are notable positive  changes in my students attitude, facial expressions and achievement.  Music is important in school and out.  So I would encourage you to play music.  Contact me and I will help you get involved with music through lessons or in school for your child, a family member or yourself!
