Teachers stress early introduction to music

Even if a student doesn’t plan on playing an instrument in band, it is still beneficial for all students to be exposed to music, Williams said.

"Music just pulls everything together," she said. "We study social studies, math, language arts, you name it across the board. I’m going to be doing a sound unit with my second-graders. They study sound in science, so we’re going to explore the instrument sounds. It’s the glue that holds everything together, and like I tell my fifth-graders, if they can read music, it is going to add so much wonder to their lives."
