Music feeds the heart and soul

Education isn’t just about feeding the brain. Art and music feed the heart and soul.

Julie Garwood

Hands up if you agree!

I love the way music touches our emotions and feeds ‘the heart and soul’. This was brought home to me in a recent music lesson where the piece a student was playing connected with them so deeply, it inspired them to tears – in a good way!

It’s so wonderful when music has the capacity to do that.

Do you think, as music teachers, we can sometimes get so focused on correcting notes, rhythm etc., that connecting with the music in this way can take second place?
