"Studies have linked active music making with better language and math ability, improved school grades, better adjusted social behavior and improvements in spatial-temporal reasoning." - American Music Conference, 2001
Corron students come to music class once a week for 30 minutes. Students participate in a variety of activities including singing, movement, playing instruments, learning rhythmic and melodic notation, and listening to various styles of music. Every grade level presents a music program each year. These programs are a great way to build confidence and self-esteem in our students.
There is a direct correlation between improved SAT scores and the length of time spent studying the arts. College-bound seniors who have had school music experience scored 52 points higher on the verbal portion of their SATs and 37 points higher in math (89 points combined) than those without arts instruction.
