"Music class means playing instruments. I like playing the xylophone. I like music class. It makes me happy."
~ Michaela, 1st Grader
"Music class means I can whistle and use a horn to make music. Music class makes me excited."
~ Conner, 2nd Grader
"I like reading music because it's like I can read new language. And I now can play 4 different instruments and when I take music class I will learn more. Music class is great. I love music."
~ Teddy, 3rd Grader
"Music class means a lot to me. It is not a group of mice squeaking, but a group of kids singing and playing beautiful instruments. Music is in my heart. I get to learn to sing songs, play instruments, and cooperate with others. I already play violin and take dance classes and I love both of them."
~ Sophia, 4th Grader
"I like singing because i get really confident that I am good at singing. I also enjoy playing the music games."
~ Sophia, 2nd Grader
"I like music class because it makes me happy and wakes me up for school and I enjoy the rest of my day."
~ Samantha, 1st Grader
"Music can surround you with warmth and it makes you feel good about yourself. Music is an adventure."

"I love to play the ukulele and I didn't like music but once I came to this school I like music a lot! I always love coming to music because it takes me to my happy place!"
