Children Making Music
This module encourages the next generation of musicians. Three videos address three different audiences: children, parents, and church/school leaders. The videos show youth participating in what Martin Luther called “an outstanding gift of God,” second only to theology. They can help children and parents gain an appreciation for music as a vehicle for proclaiming the Gospel. But the focus isn’t only on church music. Studies point to a link between music education and academic achievement. Children involved in music tend to be more involved in reading and other academic pursuits. Belonging to a music group can also help children strengthen self-esteem and friendships.
