Welcome! My name is Jaime Peters and I will be your child's music teacher. When children learn music together they learn much more than notes and songs... they discover how to 'give and take' in a group situation. Music education challenges them with creativity to find multiple answers to musical situations while demanding self-discipline and practice to 'get it right'. They learn that it often takes more than two or three tries to learn a musical pattern, memorize a sequence or match a melody. It takes teamwork for a musical ensemble to sound good and it takes true commitment to master the art of music. Music class provides avenues that focus on "we" rather than "me"... a skill that develops empathy and compassion. When children learn to listen and work as a musical unit, aesthetic moments can be experienced, yes, even at the elementary level! Music education is uniquely different and offers elements to a child's life that can be found in no other subject.
