Music Success

Music encourages self-expression, teaching children to understand and express their emotions and feelings.

This week is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme of this week is ‘Express yourself’, encouraging children and adults to find time to express themselves and the creative ways that we can share our thoughts, our feelings and our ideas. This could be through poetry, dancing, art, writing or music.
