Music is undeniably part and partial of the human society. The beat of the heart is more than words. Life begins with that inner music and ends when this music stops.
The school has a music club. The club caters to the learning of some basic skills in playing musical instruments such as guitar, drum kit and piano for about 20 students. However for those good in one of these, the club is a platform for refining their talents.
Unlike other clubs, this club by its very nature develops multiple skills of the child. The students not only learn but also enjoy the melody and find relaxation. Researchers have it, that, as children play, enjoy and relax in the world of music, their memory, language skill, IQ and temporal skills are developed. Music is therefore more than music and the music club is something more than what meets the eyes.
"I can't imagine a more powerful tool for growth and development in children. As an educator, and now as a parent, I think music is an essential element in child's life."
