When it comes to music, our goal is for the children to be fully engaged. At a time when sitting in a socially distant classroom or watching Zoom lessons is the norm all over the country, our students are present and eager to play their hearts out in music classes.

Music tells us a story, and by learning how to read and write in the language of music, we learn about different cultures, ideas, and experiences. Additionally, students may be able to relate and connect with Jewish culture on a deeper level with the unique power of music.

Learning music also provides us a way to express ourselves. For students that are still developing their sense of self, music helps them to convey their feelings in place of words. Similarly, students may feel more confident after practicing and playing music, furthering their mental development and strengthening their self-esteem.

With health precautions in place, we are carefully and safely allowing ourselves to move, dance, and explore how different music makes us feel. We work together as a group to create our own music and tell our own stories, creating a culture of self-expression, sharing, and listening. The benefits of music are felt at a young age and will last our students a lifetime.
