Larkspur Elementary Musical Park

Apr 24, 2023 | Grants, Our Stories

Principal Cody Miller informed us that “Our students have limited access to private music lessons and instruments than higher-income families do.” A lot of the students do not have access to musical instruments at home, so with the musical park, they can take the lessons learned in music class, and practice during recess or after school.

In fact, “music is another language, and playing music has direct cognitive and affective benefits,” relayed Principal Miller. The rhythms and patterns support mathematical concepts, and songs support language development.

In short, this NEEF funded musical playground is another example of an innovative approach to supporting student growth.
