Music is an integral part of a student's education. According to the National Association for Music Education, musical training helps develop language and reasoning skills, builds imagination and intellectual curiosity, and can help with emotional development and creative thinking. Higher academic achievement has been linked to music. Studies have found better reading and math skills among children who take music lessons. Not only that, but music may help concentration, behavior and attitude!
Standifer Gap offers music education to all students. "Mrs. Notes" is our music education teacher. Additional elective music choices include choir, bells, guitar and ukulele.
