NEW TMEA ELEMENTARY MUSIC VIDEO EXPRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC EDUCATION AT AN EARLY AGE
The elementary division of TMEA released a video promoting the importance of elementary music instruction.
The message of the video is clear. Music is Essential. “Elementary music instruction is essential to the development of a child’s mind, soul and society.”
TMEA wants the public to know the importance of getting music instruction during early childhood education. Music has shown to help children develop improved memory and reasoning skills, leading to higher academic achievement and evidence of a greater lifelong cognitive development.
The Texas Music Educators Association is an organization dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. Among their many goals, TMEA strives to foster public support for music in schools and cultivate universal appreciation and lifetime involvement in music.
