Hello California! We’ve been waiting for you.

EdSource (Highlighting Strategies for Student Success) recently published an article penned by Jane Meredith Adams titled “Understanding social and emotional learning: a quick guide”. According to the article, “To improve education, California is asking schools to improve the way they meet the emotional as well as the academic needs of students.” We are so grateful to Ms. Adams for covering this topic. GROWING SOUND has been waiting patiently for the state of California to embrace the work we’ve been doing for the last 10 years in arts education; with a specific focus on creating songs for social-emotional learning. Our songs are rooted in research; including the research conducted by CASEL!

You can read the full article here. We hope this awareness will invite CA school districts to explore our wonderful songs and professional development training opportunities. We’ve got our suitcase packed, ready to go, and singing I CAN DO IT!
