As March winds down, our guest blogger and music teacher Brianne Turgeon recaps the importance of music education and its impact on students.
SPARK’s Music in (around, near, and far from) our Schools Month
By Brianne Turgeon, Music/Chorus teacher at Springdale Park Elementary
“Music In Our Schools Month® or “MIOSM®” is the National Association for Music Education’s annual celebration during March which engages music educators, students, and communities from around the country in promoting the benefits of high quality music education programs in schools.”
As the Music and Chorus teacher at Springdale Park Elementary, I take the task of promoting Music Education very seriously. My personal goal as SPARK’s Music teacher is to make music an integral part of our school’s fabric that includes the students & teachers, our parents, the local community, and our community at large.
Throughout the month of March the students at Springdale Park have been extremely busy and involved in raising awareness of the deep importance that our school community places on Music. Students on every grade level have had opportunities to perform and create music, as well as be audience members for some amazing musical performances!
Here’s what we have been up to, just in March! For information about what we’ve been doing all year go to: http://springdaleparkmusic.blogspot.com/
