Students are encouraged to listen to classical music and describe what they heard in the music. Make up a story, tell how the music made him/her feel, example; could they dance to it, did it make them happy, sad, fall asleep, did they think of a summer day, grandma, grandpa, the dog, etc...
My promise to you . . . I will respect the individuality of the student. I will work with them at their pace, gently urging them forward and will not try to mold them into anyone else.
