" Inspiring us all to create a better world"

Matthew 5: 13-15 " You are the salt of the are the light of the world."


Why Music?

Music is maths - music is rhythm based on the division of time into fractions.

Music is P.E. - it requires coordination of fingers, lips and the control of the back and stomach.

Music is language - in fact it is a UNIVERSAL language

Music is history - music has been present during every era of time

Music is art - music allows us to create emotion

Music is life - that's why our hearts have beats

Music is Science - music is about acoustics and frequencies produced by voices and instruments

Music is reading - reading music requires subsets of skills and these same skills help to maintain our literacy.

Music is FUN - music can make us feel good. It is known to have a positive effect on our mental health and well-being!
