No place for Social-Emotional Learning in Schools? Are you sure?


Education Week recently published a great article by Peter DeWitt focusing (once again) on the importance of social-emotional learning.

But Dewitt builds his case once again in this new article and we couldn’t agree more.

Yes, at Growing Sound our focus area is on music (songs) because music is universal. But the reason and/or research behind our songs, our mission-really, is what drives us. We see the impact it makes on the children, the teachers, the families.
