Social and Emotional Learning
These skills are the foundation of all other learning, but many students are hesitant to discuss their feelings. Music is used as an access point to discussion emotions by dynamic educator/performers. Learners practice empathy, consider the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and actions, and apply SEL skills to real-world “homework” assignments.
Discover empathy through music
Students will discuss empathy and consider a good friend of theirs, take their perspective and imagine a song that represents their current emotional state.
Optimism & Good Choices
This lesson focuses on identifying the feelings of ourselves and of others, making good choices and developing optimism. Students will use the zones of regulation as a framework for identifying emotions within ourselves and in others.
