Brain-based research has shown that people can retain information longer when it has a rhythm to it. In addition, children who learn how to read musical notes have scored higher on mathematics tests. Yet, music and art are the subject areas considered unnecessary when there is a need for budget cuts. Why do most educational designs think music and art are less important than reading, writing, math, science, social studies, etc?Mr. Stuart Dailey, an elementary school music teacher will share information about why music is an important element in education particularly for children of African descent and why it is essential that music must be taught throughout the curriculum, and not just in separate areas such as orchestra and choir. He will share how to incorporate music into history and other academic areas to improve student retention and emotional decisions. Mr. Dailey will share his experiences of teaching music to African-American elementary students. He will discuss how music is a language that all people speak --that cuts across racial, cultural, social, educational, and economic barriers and enhances cultural appreciation and awareness.
