This Week on MommyMaestra: Music in Education



Music is a large part of the Latino culture. From flamenco to samba, every Spanish-speaking country has a unique beat that often reflects the movement, thoughts, and passions of its people.

But all over the world, music is used to teach, soothe, and inspire. There's a reason that parents instinctively croon a sweet lullaby to their newborns. Children are instinctively rhythmic and their brains learn new concepts and sounds quickly when they are presented in a musical form.

MommyMaestra is dedicating this week to Music in Education. We have some fabulous articles on using music to teach language, tips for buying your child's first musical instrument, books on music appreciation, lessons and crafts, and so much more.

I hope you will bookmark this site and share it with your friends. And if you have found some fabulous music resources that you use with your own children or students, I hope you will share them with us!


Con mucho cariño....
