Plato once said that music “is a more potent instrument than any other for education”.
You will find many music teachers who would agree with him. Recent research has found that music uses both sides of the brain simultaneously, a fact that makes it valuable in all areas of development. Music affects brain growth academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
We as humans are naturally born as musical and rhythmical. Even those who say they cannot hold a tune or sing off-key, have a musical and rhythmical intelligence. We live in a universe where rhythm and beat are intrinsically embedded in our lives. Recent research is just now beginning to show the profound affects of music on learning and our lives.
At the Fox River Academy, we are proud of the many dynamic, passionate, and experienced educators we have as part of our faculty.
