The benefits of music on behaviour

Mark runs one of our QLD programs, and it’s wonderful to hear how music has been engaging some of the more difficult individuals.

‘I am having a lot of individuals coming up to me and sharing musical things they are taking from the class and taking it further at home. Discipline and behaviour can be fairly difficult at times but the general fun atmosphere of the music classes seems to be engaging some of the more difficult individuals. It is a great feeling to arrive at school and have some of the breakfast club kids scramble to help-out and set up. The program has also been successful at giving children who have English as a second Language who are struggling a little academically to have some moments in the sun and excel in front of their teachers and peers.’
