EYS "Mini Concerti" Project
May 27 to 29 @ EYS Classrooms
"Mini Concerti" project, it is a series of short performances by middle school students for students in the EYS. Students will be sharing music with the youngest Nido students and introducing them to the beautiful world of sound or, in other words, to the international instrumental music language. I think everyone know how important is music education is at school. Active listening and playing any musical instrument has great benefits for a child’s brain. Albert Einstein played his violin all his life.
