Learning a new instrument

Salve Maria!

There’s some new tunes being heard here at Guiding Light Academy! Our Grade 3, 4, 5, and 6 students are learning to play the recorders!

The recorder is a great beginner instrument to introduce students to reading musical notes and rhythm. Students are always very excited and eager to learn new songs as new notes and rhythms are being introduced!

With music being a great way for children to express themselves, music education also helps the child in areas of brain development. Without a doubt, music also helps the child to practice and explore their creativity and trains the child to be disciplined to aim for excellence in learning and perfecting a song.

This exposure to music will have a positive impact on the child’s development and creative skills. We look forward to the new tunes the students will play next!
