Remarkable!!! This morning's event captured our students' attention, creativity, and created a real sense of success. I know our students will be talking about this for some time.

Words & Music provides an opportunity for blended learning and really makes vital connections between what children think they want to know and what they need to know. 

-District Supervisor

We all just loved this experience! I am in awe of the talented musicians who can bring these songs to life! And, what I really loved, is that the students who don't normally step up to share their work or to be in the spotlight were chosen.
