“There is a task that they put out prior to the self to the children’s head and it is interesting.”
Schutter said when children play music, they use many parts of the brain in thinking and their physical aspects of playing.
“When they do music, the brain is lit up because they use so many parts of their brain in thinking and their physical aspects of playing the different instruments,” she said.
“And when they do math, it lights up one part of their brain, when they do science it lights up another part of the brain, and when they do English it lights up another part of the brain.”
Schutter said music opens up a new world for children by learning to read music, playing instruments and also helps them to read books.
“Music is truly a gift God has given us,” She said.
“When children learn and play music, it opens up a whole new world for them.
“Its enjoyable and they can be able to say I can do this and I can share my musical ability with other people.”
