Music and Young Minds

Music is academic. For some people, this is the primary reason for providing music lessons to their children. A recent study from the University of California found that music trains the brain for higher forms of thinking. Second graders who were given music lessons scored 27% higher on proportional math and fractions tests than children who received no special instruction. Research indicates that musical training permanently wires a young mind for enhanced performance.

Music is physical. Music can be described as a sport. Learning to sing and keep rhythm develops coordination. The air and wind power necessary to blow a flute, trumpet or saxophone promotes a healthy body.

Music is emotional. Music is an art form. We are emotional beings and every child requires an artistic outlet. Music may be your child’s vehicle of expression.

Music is for life. Most people can’t play soccer, or football at 70 or 80 years of age but they can sing. And they can play piano or some other instrument. Music is a gift you can give your child that will last their entire lives.

 


We are very proud of each one of our talented musicians and their dedication to the beautiful music that they play!

Our Community is Powerful!

A community becomes powerful when its members pull together for a united cause.

Participation is essential.

We need your help in continuing to move forward in our efforts to create an ECO Learning Center at Malabar Street Elementary.

Thank you!

Malabar Musicians are the best!

Congratulations to the 2nd Year Malabar Orchestra students who earned First Place in the USA/China Music and Art Festival! The arts continue to be an integral part of Malabar's mission to teach to the whole child. We challenge our students to develop life-long skills such as analytical thinking, clarity in written and spoken expression, collaboration, and creativity. These skills can all be developed through the arts and are valuable in any career. Thank you to our incredible music instructor, Mr. E! Way to go Malabar Bears!

Here are some tips for taking tests:

  • First, be sure you've studied properly. It sounds like a no-brainer, but if you're sure of the information, you'll have less reason to be worried.
  • Get enough sleep the night before the test. Your memory recall will be much better if you've had enough rest. In a scientific study, people who got enough sleep before taking a math test did better than those who stayed up all night studying.
  • Listen closely to any instructions. As the teacher gives you instructions, be sure you know what's expected of you.
  • Read the test through first. Once you have the test in front of you, read over the entire test, checking out how long it is and all the parts that you are expected to complete. This will let you estimate how much time you have for each section and ask the teacher any questions. If something seems unclear before you start, don't panic: ask.
  • Focus on addressing each question individually. As you take the test, if you don't know an answer, don't obsess over it. Instead, answer the best way you can or skip over the question and come back to it after you've answered other questions.
  • Relax. If you're so nervous that you blank out, you might need a mini-break. Of course you can't get up and move around in the middle of a test, but you can wiggle your fingers and toes, take four or five deep breaths, or picture yourself on a beach or some other calm place. As we all know, it can be easy to forget things we know well. During a test, if you blank out on something and start to get tense, it suddenly becomes much more difficult to remember.
  • Finished already? It's usually a good idea to spend any extra time checking over your work. You can add details that you may not have thought of before and improve your answers.

These tips should help most people, but some can get serious test-taking terror. If you're one of them, you may need to talk to a parent, teacher, or counselor for help.

Good luck!
