Break out the trumpets! Class is always a fanfare with our music teacher Mr. Soto! A passionate and nurturing teacher who understands the power of music to inspire, uplift and motivate students. Mr. Soto is a gem of a teacher. His method and dedication to teaching our students earned him the “Beacon of Light” teacher award—given to educators who “go above and beyond to make a profound impact in the lives of their students.”
Being a tuition-free public charter school that focuses on infusing creativity in our teaching model, Mr. Soto’s hands-on approach to teaching students music engages them from the start of class to the end. His secret? Allowing children to do what they love to do...play! Mr. Soto’s interactive music lessons keep students engaged throughout the class. His strategy is to let children enjoy playing while maintaining a serious and intentional approach to learning. Students enjoy playing various instruments and games, focusing on purposeful learning.
Studying music in grades K-5 is extremely beneficial for young learners—both in tangible and intangible ways. It goes beyond learning to play an instrument or sing. Infusing music in early education helps students develop essential life skills like teamwork, discipline, goal setting and even math, believe it or not (sheet music requires a real-time calculation to know how long to play a note or take a rest).
Music education can improve memory and coordination. Students of Mr. Soto often become more focused, confident and expressive in other areas of life because of his encouragement and direction. It’s a rewarding scenario for everyone!
