Next week is instrument day! I would love to have several people share an instrument or vocal talent! Of course, performing is optional, but we would enjoy hearing from you, your child, or another family member or friend. They can play an instrument (one of our semester instruments would be amazing!) or sing a solo (a song from this semester would be fabulous, too!). We welcome any and all performers!
If you haven’t done so already, please let me know what you are planning to share in class.
Did you know that playing a musical instrument on a regular basis can help alleviate stress? Playing an instrument can help lower your heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn lowers the stress hormone cortisol which helps us feel relaxed. Studies have also shown a correlation between playing an instrument and an enhanced immunological response that enables us to fight viruses more effectively.
Optional home fun activity: Do the Instrument Day activity on page 18 in your workbook.
(Remember, these activities are optional but can be a great bonding experience to do with your child during the week.)
