Your brain is better on music. Here are 7 areas that our music based The Listening Program® (TLP) can influence, to help your student succeed at school and in life.
Every student faces new situations requiring high-level mental processes; to regulate their behavior, anticipate outcomes and adapt to changing situations, while they are also learning new information.
Attention, memory, behavior, organization, self-control and time management.
As a student navigates their day, they need to be effective communicators; through verbal and written expression as well as non-verbal gestures, facial expressions and body language.
Verbal and reading comprehension, oral & written communication, voice quality, understanding body language and being understood by others.
When your student is unable to understand and make sense of what they hear, it will negatively impact learning, thinking, communication and relationships.
Listening, following verbal directions, focusing with background noise, comfort with sound, understanding tone of voice, and sound discrimination.
Social & Emotional:
We all want our students to develop positive relationships with their peers & teachers. Developing their social skills and emotional intelligence is a crucial part of their educational experience.
Self-confidence, compassion, social interactions, interpersonal relationships, mood regulation and conflict resolution.
When a student’s brain and body are constantly on edge because of an inability to manage stress, it’s nearly impossible to learn.
Stress reduction, relaxation, a lower tension level, better sleep, and the reduction of nervous habits.
The harmonious functioning of fine and gross motor skills allows mental space for learning.
Balance, body awareness, coordination, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and activity level.
The joy a student experiences when they can express themselves creatively, whether verbally, through written form or creative imaginative projects, all provide numerous opportunities for growth.
Innovation, problem solving, visual arts, musicality, creative writing, and open thinking.
