We all know the healing power of music… so be sure to enjoy some today! Play some music today… just do it, like no one is listening!!! Put on a concert for your family or line up some unsuspecting stuffed animals or other toy characters. Plants love music and it’s almost Spring – so go sing to your trees!  They will thank you with glorious buds of new life.  Remember to share the joy you have for music with others – how about during your next video chat with gramma and grandpa – sing them a song? Or how about try writing a song? The creative musical experience possibilities are endless…

While school is closed, you can still enjoy some music learning in the safety of your home! Please access the following websites for activities, tutorials, games and quizzes. Please see below.
