Musical Moments understands the importance of teaching Social-Emotional Skills

Research shows that even more than IQ or academic abilities, emotional awareness and the ability to manage feelings determines success and happiness in all walks of life. Children need guidance, coaching and practice to build emotional intelligence. Read more: The Health Benefits of Music.

Currently, students spend most of their school day learning and practicing academic skills when they also need help learning and practicing social-emotional skills. Each Musical Moments program teaches a communication skill through the use of puppet characters, singing and movement!

We start with a social-emotional lesson and add our unique singing and movement. Research also shows that vocabulary and concepts paired with singing and movement are easier to remember and more fun! Through repetition and rehearsal of the songs, children are able to retain information in their long-term memory.

Many preschools and elementary schools need a social-emotional music program. This is our special gift to children. Let us know if we can provide an educational musical option for your classroom, event or program.
