Music & Singing

Our Passion for singing & Music

At Green Dragon we are extremly passionate about music and singing. They say that music is the universal language. Regardless of where you are from or what your background, a good melody is something that everyone can enjoy and understand. Singing and music play an important role in our culture.

Singing helps them bond – whatever the song or language. They can express their feelings of joy or excitement, of being scared or proud. 

  • Benefits of music and singing
    • It helps boost brain power - Stimulates parts of the brain that are related to reading, math, and emotional development.
    • Improves their memory - "Further research has shown that participation in music at an early age can help improve a child's learning ability and memory by stimulating different patterns of brain development," ~ Maestro Eduardo Marturet
    • Helps them socially - "Socially, children who become involved in a musical group or ensemble learn important life skills, such as how to relate to others, how to work as a team and appreciate the rewards that come from working together, and the development of leadership skills and discipline." ~ Maestro Eduardo Marturet
    • It is a confidence builder - Develops their confidence especially when learning to play a musical instrument.
    • Teaches patience - We live in a world of instant gratification, but real life demands having patience.
    • Can help them connect - Music can be a much-needed connection for kids. "It can satisfy the need to unwind from the worries.” ~ Michael Jolkovski
    • It is constant learning - You can never truly learn everything there is to know. Music is like that. "It is inexhaustible - there is always more to learn." ~ Michael Jolkovski
    • A great form of expression - It gives pleasure and expresses nuances of emotional life for which there are no words.
    • Teaches discipline - Exposing children to musical instruments and singing is the key. They are naturally curious and excited about them.
    • Fosters creativity - It is a creative pursuit. Creatively is good for the mind, body and soul.
